Scottish Wildlife Photographic Competition

Post by chrisjohnson » 30 May 2012, 17:25

SNH looking for Scotland's best nature photos

To celebrate Scotland's amazing biodiversity, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) is launching a free photo contest today (24 May).

As part of Scottish Biodiversity Week festivities, SNH is encouraging Scots to enjoy nature by capturing their favourite natural places and wildlife.

The sixth annual Nature Photography Competition is open to both amateur and professional photographers. Keen photographers have plenty of time to get snapping, with a deadline of July 31 to get their photos to SNH.

First prize is a one-to-one tutorial with one of Scotland's leading professional nature photographers, Lorne Gill; second prize is a Nikon D5100 Digital SLR camera with a tripod; and third prize is a Panasonic Lumix LX5 Digital Camera and a tripod.

This information came from an SNH press release. Perhaps the local SNH office will have more information.
