Get outside and get snap happy for the British Wildlife Photography Awards
2 April 2009
Natural England is one of the sponsors in this inaugural competition with over £13,500 worth of prizes and a year-long nationwide exhibition tour
A brand new competition, the British Wildlife Photography Awards, is being established to celebrate the talents of amateur and professional photographers and to highlight the great wealth and diversity of British natural history. Natural England is sponsoring the ‘Wildlife in my Locality’ and the special ‘Schools, Youth and Community Group Award’ as part of its ‘One Million Children Outdoors’ campaign.
Natural England is delighted to be involved with these inaugural British Wildlife Photography Awards as it is a great opportunity to motivate people of all ages – especially schoolchildren – to get outside with a camera to capture what amazing wildlife is living in their garden, or around the corner in a local nature reserve, or further afield in other nature reserves or national parks.
The four-month “call for entries” period runs from Thursday 2 April to Friday 31 July coinciding with school and family holidays right across the UK.
