International Year of Biodiversity 2010 Photo Competition

logo.png (2 KB)Wild About Devon has teamed up with the Devon Biodiversity Partnership this month in calling for photographers of all ages and abilities to take part in a special wildlife photographic competition to help celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity.

The competition is open to amateur photographers and there are three categories; 5-11, 12-18 and adults.

Photos should aim to illustrate an aspect of the biodiversity found in Devon over the summer months. James Chubb from East Devon District Council who is helping to organise the competition said: “We want everyone to try and capture the best wildlife the summer has to offer and post their images to the Wild About Devon website. It could be a screaming swift in the city or a skulking crab in a rock pool, take your pick!”

The competition begins on International Biodiversity Day (22nd May) and closes on 30th September. The images will be judged by among others Nick Baker and Andrew Cooper.

Wildlife film maker Andrew Cooper said: “Devon’s wildlife is so rich and diverse it’s great to judge this competition which is helping to celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity. We are looking for images that capture Devon’s wildlife at its best glory in action, colour and composition or just simply beautiful?”
