2017 Calendar - Photographic Competition

2017 Calendar - Photographic Competition

Following the success of the competition for the 2016 Calendar, Mid-Nene Local Group is running another Photography Competition for the 2017 Calendar. The theme is "British Wildlife" and is open to your personal interpretation but we are looking for beautiful images of British wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, plants or fungi. The twelve images selected by the judges will appear in the Mid-Nene Calendar for 2017 sold in aid of the RSPB Mid-Nene Local Group to raise funds for RSPB conservation projects. The photograph shows the picture on the cover of the 2016 Calendar of a Grebe on Womack Water by Peter Miller. The rules for the Competition are attached in .pdf format. So remember to take your camera with you and let the judges see your pictures of the lovely wildlife in Great Britain.
