Garden Wildlife Photo Competition

Garden Wildlife Photo Competition

WildNet - Tom Marshall

We are on the hunt for 12 fantastic wildlife photos - taken in your garden - for our 2021 Calendar.

Under the current circumstances, many of us are unable to get out far into the wider countryside so we decided to keep things closer to home and make the theme of our 2021 calendar garden wildlife.

Our gardens have the potential to be wonderful habitats for all sorts of wildlife so this competition will suit all those wildlife lovers who do all they can to make wildlife welcome on their patch. We want to see photos which feature native wildlife (no pets!) and that includes native wildflowers and trees.

You'll find all the terms and conditions of entry of below. We can't wait to see your photos. Good luck!
