Photo Competition


We’re now looking for your most beautiful and awe-inspiring wildlife and landscape photographs for our 2018 online calendar.

The theme of this year’s competition is The Joy of Nature

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. 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. Show us the wild places that are special to you. It could be high on the Downs, deep in the woods or your favourite urban nature spot.

What do I win?

The First Prize is £100 cash

The winning 12 photographs will also feature in our online calendar and be displayed at the Sussex Wildlife Trust's AGM in November 2017. 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.

What are the rules?
