Urban Deer Photography Competition

logo Welcome to Scotland’s First Urban Deer Photography Competition!

Many published photographs of deer show the majestic ‘Monarch of the glen’ silhouetted on a hillside or against a dramatic and romantic Scottish scene, others of shy roe deer in woodland cover and farm fields.

Increasingly though, our sightings of deer are much more frequent and more often much closer to home. It’s part of our changing world. We have seen photographs of urban foxes and urban peregrines included in wildlife photography portfolios; will you take the challenge of capturing the changing habits of deer and their increasing use of the green spaces within our towns and villages?

It’s a great opportunity and excuse to get out and about and capture a little bit of the wild, not too far from your back door step … and there are some great prizes on offer. We want to see pictures of wild deer in an identifiably urban setting. This could be set in your garden, local park, cemetery or even a roundabout!

There is are great prizes up for grabs too with first place being chance to participate in a day’s helicopter count with the Wildlife Operations Unit and the runner up benefiting from a days photography tuition from SNH photographer, Lorne Gill.

All entries should be submitted before the closing date of 1st April 2015 to URBANDEERPHOTOCOMP@snh.gov.uk
