After the success of its first wildlife photo competition in 2020, Wild Marlow has launched its 2023 competition, giving amateur photographers the chance to win great prizes and exposure for their work.
“The aim of the contest is to stimulate interest in, and appreciation of, the wildlife and habitats of the Marlow area,” Verity West of Wild Marlow said.
Each winning photo will be featured in the Wild Marlow Calendar for 2023. The overall winner’s photo will take the front cover position and the winner will receive gift vouchers to the value of £100. Winners in the other two categories will receive gift vouchers to the value of £50.
The competition is open to everyone – all ages and abilities – except professional photographers. The judges are looking for still photos – colour or black and white – taken by camera, smartphone or tablet, and the pictures must be taken within the Marlow area (SL7). Pictures can be taken in any season of the year, and there will be three categories: Junior School Child, Senior School Child, and Adult.
Entries must be of wildlife taken in the SL7 Marlow and surrounding areas. You can submit up to two entries per quarter.
