Could your pho­to­graph win a Ju­lian gard­ner award?

Shooting Gazette - - Shoot Briefing -

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
