IT is the fi­nal month of WWT Martin Mere’s Pho­tog­ra­phy Com­pe­ti­tion

WWT Martin Mere Wet­land Cen­tre launched a pho­to­graph com­pe­ti­tion in Septem­ber to show­case the best wildlife on dis­play at the cen­tre.

There is just one month left to up­load your best snap taken at the cen­tre over the past year for your chance to win some fan­tas­tic cam­era equip­ment.

Cen­tre Man­ager, Nick Brooks, said: “Many of you take pho­tos of the wildlife you see at Martin Mere and, this au­tumn, we want to see them.

“The ba­sics are sim­ple, if you are over 18, if its dig­i­tal, if it’s of wildlife and was taken at WWT Martin Mere in 2017 it will be el­i­gi­ble.

“As well as a chance to win a great prize, all pic­tures en­tered will be on dis­play for ev­ery­one to see in our ex­hi­bi­tion hall through­out the months of De­cem­ber, Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary.”

To enter the com­pe­ti­tion for your chance to win fan­tas­tic prizes, up­load your best pic­tures taken at the cen­tre in 2017 to ei­ther our Flickr group “Martin Mere: Pho­tog­ra­phy Com­pe­ti­tion 2017”.

Clos­ing date for the com­pe­ti­tion is the Novem­ber, 30 and the winners will be in­formed in the first week of De­cem­ber.

The last pho­to­graph com­pe­ti­tion was in 2015 to cel­e­brate Martin Mere’s 40th an­niver­sary.

The win­ner was Bruce Fal­con with a pic­ture of a gold­en­eye, with the run­ner up be­ing Mag­gie Hen­shaw with a pic­ture of a moorhen chick.

Nick con­tin­ues: “The stan­dard of en­tries is al­ways very high when we do pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tions, I am ex­cited to see what amaz­ing images we will see this time. “Good luck to ev­ery­one who en­ters”. WWT Martin Mere Wet­land Cen­tre is open ev­ery day (ex­cept Christ­mas Day) from 9.30am to 6pm and park­ing is free of charge.

Sit­u­ated off the A59, it is sign­posted from the M61, M58 and M6.
