Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Great British Wildlife Photography Challenge

Great British Wildlife Photography Challenge Calling all amateur photographers! Today sees the launch of a fabulous new national wildlife photography competition – Weekend magazine’s Great British Wildlife Photography Challenge.

We’re looking for your stunning shots of creatures in their natural British habitats – whether that’s up a mountain in the Highlands or on a bird table in your back garden.

The results will be judged by our panel of experts including Countryfile’s Julia Bradbury, Kate Humble and Springwatch’s Chris Packham in four categories – Mammals, Birds, Insects, and Fish, Reptiles And Amphibians, with an additional category for under-18s.

If you think you’re a natural at photographing wildlife, take up our challenge and start snapping! All photographs must have been taken in the British Isles. Studies of farm animals, pets and animals kept in captivity are ineligible. Entrants can submit photographs in more than one category but no more than three in total across the competition.

Independent Photo
