This year the competition’s theme is “I spend time in nature because…”.
We would like you to send in photographs of places you go regularly or perhaps somewhere you only went once but that affected you deeply. Your image could be of a landscape or, capture in small scale some aspect of the place that you were in, for example focus on a single plant or animal.
Tell us in words why this place and its nature is special to you. You could describe your experience in the form of a short paragraph or even a poem. We want to know why nature is special to you. This accompanying information will play an important part in judging your entry.
