Cheshire Wildlife Trust is calling on budding photographers to enter wildlife photographs in a competition to be published in its charity calendar for 2021.

The 2021 charity calendar will go on sale later this year.

And the 12 best entries will each 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.

Jo Darlington, director of fundraising and communications, 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.”

People are being urged to look through any photographs they have previously taken, as well as to check their garden 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.

He has won numerous awards for his photography and his reputation has led him to take photographs all over the world.

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

Closing date for entries is Sunday May 31.
