Could your photograph win a Julian gardner award?
entries are now open for the sixth Julian Gardner Award, an amateur photography competition run by the GWCT.
the competition, which is split into an adult and a junior section (for those 16 and under), seeks to encourage photographers to capture images of the countryside that are of interest to them, whether their preferred subject is people, game and wildlife or landscapes.
the winner of the adult category will receive a sculpture of a hare while the winner of the junior category will receive a sculpture of a leveret. the top three photographs from both the adult and junior sections will be printed in the GWCT’S Gamewise magazine and also uploaded to the GWCT website.
richard Gunther won first prize in the 2017 adult competition with his image of a deer herd. the junior category was won by Lauren Smewing. Organiser James Swyer, editor of
Gamewise, said: “It’s a fantastic competition in memory of a great man who was an ardent support of the trust and its work. each year, the competition seems to grow in popularity and we are spoilt by the great selection of photos which are submitted. I have no doubt this year will be no different and we look forward to receiving the entries and then have the difficulty of judging them.”
the Julian Gardner Award was set up five years ago in memory of Sussex farmer Julian Gardner, a lifelong supporter of the GWCT, who died in 2010.
the closing date for entries is
April 30, 2018. For more details, visit: gwct.org.uk/photocompetition
