We want to see YOU! So your photo must include your face and must sum up what being ‘muddy’ means to you. Being ‘muddy’ doesn’t have to mean getting coated in mud; it could mean a photo of you on your allotment, out horse riding, in a tractor, out shooting, or trekking through the countryside in your muddy boots.

How to enter

Ask someone to take a picture of you that sums up what makes you ‘muddy’ or use a timer to capture the shot.

Once you have captured the perfect image, please email your photos to and include your name and an explanation of the photograph. Alternatively, please post your photograph along with a description and your contact details to:

Heather, Muddy Matches Ltd, Paddock View, Grange Farm, Farndish, Wellingborough, Northants, NN29 7HJ.
