This year, in conjunction with the Conference, we invite you to enter a photography competition to celebrate the many different ways in which conservation takes place in Wales, which could be anything from litter picking to pond creation.

* The challenge is to produce a photograph that illustrates ‘Conservation in Action’ in Wales. Please include a title and a short explanation (150 words maximum) of the conservation work taking place in the photograph.

* Entries will be assessed on presentation, quality, originality, and the message they convey.

* Shortlisted entries will be on display in the museum on the day of the conference and the winner will be announced during the day by our celebrity guest.

* This competition is open to all and entry is free. 

The prize is two day tickets to Skomer Island and the winning entry will be displayed in the Parc Slip Wildlife Trust Visitor’s Centre

Extended Deadline: 6th October 2013

Include your name, email address and where the photo was taken on entries.
