There’s still time for photographers to enter the North East Wildlife Photography Competition 2014.
Northumberland, Durham and Tees Valley Wildlife Trusts have again joined forces with the Natural History Society of Northumbria (NHSN) and the Great North Museum: Hancock in the hope that keen snappers will showcase the best of the region’s wildlife.
The contest has attracted a line-up of impressive judges including ITV weatherman Ross Hutchinson and Sam Lee, folk singer and keen wildlife photographer.
This year, there are six competition categories to enter, with each category winner and runner-up receiving a prize and an overall winner being selected from one of these categories for the main prize of £250: Wildlife portraits; wildlife in action; wildlife in the landscape; botanical; young person’s; art in nature.
Entry is free and open to everyone, but photographs must have been taken in the North East. The closing date for entries is midnight on Monday, May 5.
The winners will be announced at an award ceremony to be held on Thursday, July 3, and will be displayed at the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle before going on tour around the region.
