Natural History photographic competition

This year we will be running our Natural History photographic competition.

The theme is Renewal, Rebirth and Hope in Nature.

This could be the first pioneering spring bulbs breaking the surface after winter, young swallows with their parents or a newly hatched butterfly.

There will be an exhibition at the Barn in November for all the winners, runners up and other notable pictures.

There will be three age brackets:

12 and under


18 and over

1st Prize for each age group: £50 Vanguards gift card and a half day tutorial session with professional photographer Chris Nowell.

The competition opens February 1 and closes September 30

All entries must be sent to and include your name, age, and location.

A maximum of 3 entries per person.
