Getting wildlife in the frame

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has launched a brand new wildlife photography competition looking for the very best photographs of the region’s wild places and wildlife.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to capture a prize-winning image of some of Yorkshire’s stunning landscapes and the species that inhabit them then be sure to enter before the 31 January 2015 deadline.

There are four categories open to all including Yorkshire’s wild places, native wildlife, Wildlife Watch for under 15s and smartphone snaps.

There is no fee to enter, although a donation to support the Wildlife Trust’s work to protect the region’s wild places is welcomed.

The competition is being run in partnership with Yorkshire Coast Nature, a nature-tour company based in East Yorkshire who are offering some top prizes including wildlife safaris and photography workshops with Steve Race, a finalist in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 competition.

Judging will take place in February, with a judging panel choosing a number of finalists and the winners then decided by public vote. Winners will be notified in March.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Communications Officer, Joanna Richards, said: “We thought it was about time to recognise this talent by holding a competition, so that we could share all these superb images and give a thumbs up to some of our excellent local wildlife photographers.

Full details of the competition, including entry forms, uploading instructions and full terms and conditions can be found at www.ywt.org.uk/photo-competition-2015.
