There’s still time to enter Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s annual photography and film competition which is now in its 27th year.
The competition is open to amateur photographers and filmmakers of all ages, and, as with previous years, some wonderful prizes will be awarded to the winners.
There are two categories to enter: Best Wildlife Video and Best Wildlife Photograph. The age groups for the photography category are four – 12 years, 13 – 18 and over-18s.
Photographs should be a minimum print size of 6″ x 4″ with digital images being printed on high quality photographic paper. The back of each photograph should be marked with the entrant’s name, contact details, category choice and details of where the photograph was taken.
The Best Wildlife Video category is only open to entrants over 18 years of age. Film footage should be no longer than three minutes and on DVD (preferably AVI or Windows Media Player format) with details of where it was filmed.
The competition is open to entrants outside the North East, but only photographs taken and footage filmed in Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle will be eligible.
The photography competition coincides with the 100th anniversary of the wildlife trust movement.
All entries should be sent to Christine O’Neill, Northumberland Wildlife Trust, Garden House, St Nicholas Park, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 3XT.
Entrants must be willing for their photographs and film footage to be used free of charge in future Northumberland Wildlife Trust publications, promotional materials and on its website. Full credit will be given. The deadline for competition entries is 5pm on Monday, 20 February, 2012.
