Six months for north photographers to go wild

editorial image

Photographers have six months in which to go wild, to capture on camera the rich wildlife of our environment, before the closing date of 31 August for entries for the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s photography competition.

The competition was launched last year by the North of Scotland members group of the Trust to celebrate the society’s 50th birthday.

The competition is open to all amateur photographers, with a separate category for school students.

Ffordes Photographic, Beauly, has sponsored prizes. Judging will be done by Sir John Lister-Kaye, nature writer and director of the Aigas Field Centre; Charlie Phillips, Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year 2012, and noted for his dolphin pictures; and Brian Alexander and Anna Jemmett of the North of Scotland group.

Entrants are asked to submit a set of three photos that illustrate wildlife in Scotland on land, in the air and in an aquatic environment either fresh- or saltwater.

Full competition rules and conditions can be found on the {Trust’s website|}.

Founded in 1964, the Scottish Wildlife Trust has 37,000 members, looks after 119 reserves, and is the only Scottish non-governmental organisation covering all wildlife.
