Orpington Photography Competition 2023

Calling photographers of Orpington - the ninth annual Orpington Photography Competition is now open for entries!

Below - some of our favourites selected for the Orpington Calendar 2023


Autumn Days by Andrea Cseke Priory Gardens  - winner of last year's competition

Orpington Photography Competition celebrates the people and places of Orpington as captured through your own lens - whether professional camera or smartphone.


The High Street From Above by Steve Sangster 

Hundreds of thousands of photos are taken in the UK every day but few are seen, so what better opportunity to share your work.

Send us your shots by Friday 13th October for the chance to have your work featured in the Orpington Calendar 2024 and win a £100 to spend in an Orpington town centre restaurant of your choice.


In Loving Memory by Adrian Rowley

The photograph can be of anything - the perfect sunset, a magic moment at an event, friends having fun, or a local landmark, it’s up to you - but it must have been taken in a location with a BR5 or BR6 postcode.


One Boy & His Dog by Janie Heckel 

To enter, send your photographs to using the subject heading "OPC 2023 ENTRY" with a completed application form.
