Photo Competition

Entry & voting to this competition has now closed, the winners will be announced in early November

The theme of this year’s competition is Wilder Sussex

We are looking for 12 stunning photographs capturing the best of the wildlife and landscapes of Sussex. We'd love to see your local wildlife shots, showing us the vibrant and varied nature of Sussex.  Amaze us with the ladybirds in your garden, migrating wildfowl, macro spiders, flowers carpeting a woodland floor, colourful fungi, clouds of downland butterflies or a sleeping hedgehog in the park. Share the wild places that are special to you. It could be high on the Downs, deep in the woods, on the beach or your favourite urban nature spot. Show us how people care and want nature to be part of their lives.

What do I win?

The First Prize is £100 cash

The Runners Up Prize is pair of reusable KeepCups and Sussex Wildlife Trust's 2020 printed calendar

The winning 12 photographs will also feature in our online calendar and be displayed at the Sussex Wildlife Trust's AGM in November 2019 and at the Booth Museum of Natural History in Brighton. In addition, the overall winning image will feature in Wildlife magazine, our monthly e-newsletter and on the Sussex Wildlife Trust’s website and social media.
