2015 Photography Competition Winners Announced

The winning entries in our 2015 amateur photography competition have been revealed. The theme this year was the 'Wild Side of Wales' and we received a multitude of wonderful images from all over the country. The full selection can be viewed on the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales Facebook page.

The entries were split into three categories; entries received at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, entries received at Parc Slip Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre and Junior entries submitted by under 16's. Each category has a winner and a runner up who will be awarded prizes. Entries received in the adult competition will be combined to find an overall winner who will win a night's stay on Skomer Island, the runner up will receive a pair of Wildlife Trust binoculars and the second placed entries from each Visitor Centre will receive a day ticket to Skomer Island. The Junior competition has a first prize of a day trip to Skomer Island and a runner up prize of a Wildlife Trust Concise Bird Guide.

A shortlist of entries decided by a public vote via Facebook was judged by a panel of professional photographers who picked the winning entries below...
