Photo Competition

Entries to the 2020 competition have now closed

The theme of this year’s competition is Into the Wild

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

The winning 12 photographs will feature in our online calendar. 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. The winning photographer will also be offered the chance to take over the Sussex Wildlife Trust's Instagram account for a week.
