Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild

About the Guild

The Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild is the only UK organisation representing media professionals specialising in the outdoors. In addition to writers and photographers, members include illustrators, broadcasters, film-makers, artists, publishers and editors; to qualify for membership they must be ‘actively and professionally involved in sustainable activities in any outdoor setting’.
OWPG is UK-based, as are the vast majority of its members, but membership of the guild is not restricted to people living in the UK. Anyone can join, provided they meet the membership criteria and can demonstrate that they are indeed active in the world of outdoor writing, photography and/or other creative areas.

What we’re into

Walking, hiking, rambling, trekking, rock-climbing, mountaineering, cycling, mountain-biking, kayaking, surfing, scrambling, sailing, diving, dog-sledging, coasteering, canyoning, camping – and a whole lot more!
