Ar­gyll pho­tog­ra­phers urged to Pic­ture It

The Oban Times - - OUTDOORS -

PHO­TOG­RA­PHERS in Ar­gyll are be­ing urged to en­ter a pic­ture com­pe­ti­tion show­cas­ing the best of en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­ence.

The Nat­u­ral En­vi­ron­ment Re­search Coun­cil (NERC) launched the Pic­ture It: Your En­vi­ron­ment com­pe­ti­tion as part of its Un­earthed event in Ed­in­burgh in Novem­ber.

The sub­ject of the photo could be wind tur­bine ar­rays, beau­ti­ful coast­lines teem­ing with aquatic life, or even mould grow­ing around an old win­dow frame.

Im­ages will be short­listed into three cat­e­gories: 11-17 years old, 18 and over, and NERC head of­fice and cen­tre staff and NERC-funded aca­demics.

Short­listed pic­tures will be en­larged and on dis­play at Un­Earthed, NERC’s free, in­ter­ac­tive show­case at Dy­namic Earth, which will take place in Ed­in­burgh on Novem­ber 17-20.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic will then have the op­por­tu­nity to vote on the over­all win­ners.

A once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence will be on of­fer to win­ners in each cat­e­gory: an in­vi­ta­tion to the of­fi­cial nam­ing cer­e­mony of the RRS Sir David At­ten­bor­ough, NERC’s £200 mil­lion, state-of-the-art po­lar re­search ship.

To en­ter, visit www.un­earthed.ac.uk/pho­to­comp, and share pic­tures on so­cial me­dia us­ing #En­vi­ro­mo­ment.

En­tries will close on Oc­to­ber 13 and win­ners will be an­nounced on Novem­ber 22.

The com­pe­ti­tion is part of the Un­earthed event in Ed­in­burgh.
