Countryfile Calendar Photo Competition 2014

Countryfile Calendar Photo Competition Countryfile has now launched the Countryfile Calendar Photo Competition 2014. John Craven met brand new judges Charlotte Uhlenbroek and Bill Bailey at Greenham Common, to launch the 2014 competition – and it’s theme, Animal Magic.

Once all the pictures have been entered, the best 12 photographs – selected by our judges – will take pride of place in the Countryfile Calendar for 2015, one for each month.

The calendar is sold in aid of BBC Children in Need – and the Countryfile Calendar 2014 raised more than £1.4 million pounds for the charity.

The competition isn’t open to professionals and, because we want something original, entries must not have won other national competitions.

You can send in up to three photos, which must be taken in the UK – but they must be hard copies, not emailed or computer files. Unfortunately, entries cannot be returned.

Please note – pictures of pets or zoo animals are not eligible for this competition. Please label any images of captive animals as such. Entries must feature wild or farm animals, preferably in a rural setting. Please follow the Countryside Code and take care not to disturb any animals when taking your photographs.
