Guidelines for participants
You can print or download the sketches from this website, together with Wainwright’s diagram indicating the location of his viewpoint; or, of course, you can use the sketchbooks themselves. Please remember that copyright rests with The Estate of A. Wainwright. Only members of The Wainwright Society may print a copy of sketches, and only for the purpose of participating in this project. Any other copying will be a breach of copyright

Take your pictures (digital images only please, file size 500kb – 3MB) and send them to [email protected] giving your name, Society membership number, and the number of the drawing to which your picture relates.  You may, if you wish, add brief comments, for example highlighting differences between what Wainwright drew and what you saw on your visit.

Entries by members of your household who are under 18 are allowed (with parental permission): please state the young person’s relationship to you.

It’s as simple as that! The pictures which best capture the spirit of the drawings will appear on the website (and possibly later in the form of a book, CD or other media). We will try to use the work of as many different Society members as possible. Receipt of pictures will be acknowledged, but no correspondence can be entered into with individual participants.

By entering you agree to the following:

  • You will only submit your own original pictures. You will retain copyright in respect of any images you submit, but you grant to The Wainwright Society an irrevocable licence to use such images, without payment. You will be credited as the copyright holder. Pictures made available on the website may be downloadable and printable.

  • You will not trespass in order to take pictures. There is public access to almost all the viewpoints; otherwise seek permission, or take your picture from the best public access point.

  • If your picture includes people who are identifiable, you will obtain their permission to be photographed (or parents’ permission if they are children), stating the potential use of the photo.
