Somerset Wildlife Trust is looking for 12 stunning images to feature in its 'Wild Somerset' calendar for 2016.
Photographs can be of plants, animals, insects, landscapes or coastlines but must be taken within Somerset. The calendar images will be selected from the Trust’s annual photographic competition, with entries to be made online before December 31. The 12 images will also go forward for ‘The People’s Choice’ with the public invited to vote for their favourite.
Beth Jerrett, Somerset Wildlife Trust PR & Communications Manager, said: “We’re looking for images that showcase the diversity of wildlife and wild places in the county. Photographs with a strong seasonal flavour and in a landscape format are ideal for our popular ‘Wild Somerset’ calendar.”
The Trust’s ‘Wild Somerset’ calendar for 2015 is available to buy online now and features a selection of stunning images all taken by the charity’s talented members and supporters. It is an A4-sized, wall calendar, on sale at £5.99 (plus P & P.) All profits go towards supporting the charity’s work protecting vulnerable wildlife and preserving wild places.
To enter the competition look here or to buy a calendar look here.
Always remember when taking photographs of wildlife that the welfare of the subject is more important than the image. Each photographer can submit up to four images and is required to supply a few words about their photographs (e.g. where it was taken and when, and why what it captures is so special.) Digital images only please - competition closes at 12 noon on December 31 2014.
