The Land Trust has launched its annual photography competition and this year we are asking people to send in photos of their favourite part of nature.
This could be anything from a tree or a flower, to a bird or an insect. There will once again be a monthly winner, starting in February and ending in October when the competition will close. Monthly winners will receive a £15 voucher of their choosing and the overall winner will receive a £100 voucher.
Last year’s competition saw nearly 300 entries with more and more people getting out and capturing the beauty of the Land Trust’s sites across the country.
The winner was this stunning photo captured by Sean Barnett, which shows a Kingfisher perched with a freshly caught fish in its beak at the Avenue Country Park in Chesterfield.
Not only was the photograph a stunning capture, it holds significance with its surroundings and the story behind it.
The bird is perched on the remains of a boardwalk which was set alight in an arson attack in June 2021 and highlights nature’s ability to recover and adapt to its surroundings.
Anyone can enter this year’s competition. You don’t need to be a professional photographer. All entries need to be taken at one of the Land Trust’s parks and green spaces – to find your nearest Land Trust space go to our visit us page.
The competition will close on Tuesday 1 November, with the overall winner to be chosen via a public vote on the Land Trust’s social media channels.
