THE hunt is on for the county’s best wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher as Kent Wildlife Trust (KWT) launches its Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year 2010 com­pe­ti­tion. Amateurs and pro­fes­sion­als alike can en­ter in four cat­e­gories: flora; fauna; land­scape and coast­line; and peo­ple. All pic­tures must be taken on KWT’s na­ture re­serves, ex­cept those snapped on coast­lines. There is a sep­a­rate un­der-17s cat­e­gory. A per­sonal guided tour of the trust’s na­ture re­serves is among the prizes. Ray Lewis, of KWT, said: “This is the best time of the year to cap­ture im­ages of na­ture in all its glory with blos­som, blue­bells, prim­roses and wood anemones and all types of birds be­ing eas­ier to spot dur­ing the nest­ing sea­son.” Judges in­clude Phil Hurst, from the Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum’s photo unit. All win­ning pho­to­graphs will be pub­lished in the Wild Kent mag­a­zine and ex­hib­ited around KWT vis­i­tor cen­tres. The com­pe­ti­tion closes on July 30. En­tries, ex­cept ju­nior ones, re­quire a do­na­tion of £10.
