This competition has now closed.

It’s now the time of year when Britain is full of autumnal colours: the trees burst in yellows, oranges and reds; shops are full of witch costumes and oversized pumpkins; and, dare we remind you, the high streets have started putting up their Christmas lights.

Here at the Capability Brown Festival we have been celebrating the vibrant vistas of a Capability Brown site in autumn with a photography competition, #CapabilityColours.

Entriees uploaded their photos on social media with the hashtag #CapabilityColours. The photos had to be taken of a recognised Brown site (see our map), and show off the beautiful foliage. Any UK resident over the age of 18 can take part.

The competition closed on 6th of November at midnight.

A small team of judges will review the entries, selecting three to win. The results will be announced on social media shortly thereafter and winners will be contacted. Prizes will be given for the top three photos as specified below:

First place: a luxury hamper of Capability Brown themed gifts courtesy of Brown’s birthplace of Kirkharle, Northumberland, and a copy of garden historian Dr. Sarah Rutherford’s beautifully illustrated book Capability Brown and his Landscape Gardens;

Second Place: a Capability Brown tote bag from Brown’s Yorkshire landscape of Scampston, and a copy of garden historian Dr. Sarah Rutherford’s beautifully illustrated book Capability Brown and his Landscape Gardens, which provides a unique insight into the great man and his work;

Third Place: a copy of garden historian Dr. Sarah Rutherford’s beautifully illustrated book Capability Brown and his Landscape Gardens, which provides a unique insight into the great man and his work.
