With the theme ‘Welsh Nature’ photographers are encouraged to enter images that represent the beauty and diversity of Wales’s flora and fauna, whether as a landscape, seascape, wildlife or plant subject.

This annual competition attracts entries from all around the UK with last year’s winning image being a stunning Rook portrait by Robert Lawrence. Last year’s judge, professional wildlife photographer Richard Costin said, ‘the standard of this competition is very high and it was genuinely a task to pick the highly commended prints, let alone the top three!’

It costs £10 to enter up to three prints, with the proceeds going to the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. The deadline for entries is Friday 14 October and there will be a free open exhibition of the best 40 entries at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, Cilgerran during the week commencing Monday 24 October.
