The Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, due to be exhibited at Epping Forest District Museum this Spring had to be postponed due to Covid restrictions.
Wildlife on our doorstops
But instead we have launched our own photography competition on wildlife in our own district.
The focus is on wildlife on our doorsteps – photos that really tell a story about this unique moment in history. It could be of birds that you’ve never really noticed before but now watch from your window everyday whilst working, or a fox that has become increasingly bold as there’s not so much litter in the streets.
There are three categories:
- 10 Years and Under
- 11-18 Years,
- Adults (19 Years+)
Capturing the natural world
Holly Whitbread, Cabinet Member for Communities said:
Whatever access to nature you have, be it through your bedroom window, your garden or whilst exercising (please observe the current Covid restrictions) we’d like you to capture honest representations of the natural world around you.
A public and judges’ vote will decide the winners, who will receive family tickets to the postponed Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition next year along with free children’s workshops in this year’s summer programme for the winning photos.
Festival of Culture
The competition closes at midnight on Friday 30 April 2021 and entries must be taken within the district.
Visit the Epping Forest District Museum website for all the information on how to enter, size of photos, terms and conditions and frequently asked questions.
The competition is part of the first Epping Forest District Council Festival of Culture which kicked off last month and runs until 17 April, providing a platform for diverse, community led cultural activities across the district.
