We’ve never had more time to reflect on the importance of nature in our lives. Before the coronavirus pandemic, how many of us took the time not just to look, but to see? To discover the myriad shades of brown on a female blackbird’s breast, or observe how neatly a leafcutter bee snips semicircles from foliage to create cells for its young. We want to see the wetland wildlife that matters to you.
As our centres have been closed due to the pandemic, we’ve extended the period over which entries can have been taken. So this year, you can submit images taken at our centres not just in 2020, but since June 2019.
As usual, all entries will be judged by Sophie Stafford, Waterlife’s editor and an internationally renowned wildlife photography judge, and a jury of WWT experts. A shortlist of winning and commended shots will be published in the March/June 2021 issue of Waterlife, and the overall winner will be awarded a pair of Swarovski CL Companion 8x30 binoculars worth £970.
We’re also delighted to be introducing a new children’s category for young people aged 16 and under! The winner of the youth category will receive £200 worth of vouchers to spend at cliftoncameras.co.uk
You have until 30 November 2020 to enter.
