Wildlife Trust competition - Ben Hall photography competition judge (1)

Cheshire Wildlife Trust is calling on budding photographers to enter their wildlife photographs in a competition to be published in its charity calendar for 2019.

Award-winning photographer Ben Hall will be on the judging panel selecting the 12 best entries from amateur snappers in the area.

Their works will be featured in the calendar which goes on sale later this year.

Jo Darlington, director of fundraising and communications at the trust, said: “We’re looking for photographs that celebrate the variety of wildlife and landscapes our region has to offer.

“Whether that is general views of the Wirral coastline, our parks, woodland, meadows or towns or their fascinating bird, mammal, insect and wildflower inhabitants.

“I can’t wait to see all the entries.”

Each winning entry will feature as a full A4 page in the calendar and the winning photographers will receive a free copy.

Twelve runner up photos will also see their photos featured in the calendar and the overall winning entry will get the prized cover opportunity.

People can enter photographs they have previously taken, as well as check their garden and surrounding areas for opportunities to take new shots.

“We’d like the calendar to reflect the seasons, as well as the variety of wildlife that surrounds us,” added Jo.

“We are delighted to have leading wildlife photographer Ben Hall on the judging panel to help us make the final selection too.”

Ben’s work has appeared in leading wildlife and photography magazines including BBC Wildlife Magazine.

The competition is open to all ages and levels of photography experience.

Closing date for entries is Thursday May 31, 2018.
