Photographs of Staffordshire’s varied wildlife & landscapes are being sought for a 2018 charity calendar.
The calendar, which will go on sale next year, will feature the 12 winners of Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’s photograph competition. 2017’s competition saw dozens of high quality images being submitted, and the calendar is on sale now.
The photographs can be existing ones that have already been taken, or ones specifically taken for the competitions. The trust is encouraging people to go out & snap their local wildlife, or take a pic of creatures that visit in the garden. Images of all seasons are required for the calendar.
The birds & the bees, gardens & and nature reserves, the county’s special species & places have all got a chance at the prize. The 12 best entries will feature in the 2018 calendar and winners will all receive one copy each. Closing date for entries is Friday 28 April 2017.
Jon Owen, Assistant Communications Officer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “We know there are many excellent photographers who love taking pictures of wildlife and landscapes across Staffordshire. We are lucky that our wildlife and landscapes are so varied, from the rocky ridges of the Roaches near Leek to ancient lowland heath buzzing with rare wildlife, like Highgate Common in Wombourne. We are especially keen to see any images which epitomise Staffordshire.”
