WILDLIFE photographers only have a few weeks left to enter the county’s popular photography competition.

Run by Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, participants have until April 10, to enter the competition which aims to celebrate the beauty and diversity of Worcestershire’s wildlife and wild places.

Photographs must be taken in Worcestershire and the judges will be looking for striking images that engage the viewer with the wildlife or the spaces that wildlife calls home.

Wendy Carter, communications manager for the Trust, said: “We’re really looking forward to seeing what this year’s competition brings.

“Over the last few years, the number of photos of wildlife taken in people’s gardens has increased, which is great to see – not only are people helping and enjoying wildlife where they live but it means that you don’t have to go far to take a winning image.

“Whether a bee or a bird, wildflowers or blossom, a wildlife-friendly garden or a hidden wild place, we’re looking for images that inspire and enthuse as well as reflect the glory of Worcestershire’s natural world.”

The 12 winning photographs will feature as A4 images in the 2018 calendar, with one lucky photographer taking the prized front cover.

Entry forms can be downloaded from www.worcswildlifetrust.co.uk/photography-competition and the closing date is April 10.
