Photographers are being reminded that they have just two weeks to enter pictures celebrating Staffordshire’s varied wildlife and landscapes for a charity’s 2017 calendar.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust has received dozens of entries for the competition, which was launched earlier this year. The competition aims to find 12 stunning images of the county’s varying wildlife and landscapes for the calendar which goes on sale later this year.

The Trust has been urging people to pick out any photographs they have already taken, check for wildlife in their gardens or head out into the countryside across the county and start snapping. Images which capture wildlife and all the seasons are required for the calendar.

The deadline to enter photos is on Friday 22nd April.

Jon Owen, Assistant Communications Officer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said:

“We have been really pleased with the amount of entries we have received, but want to remind photographers there is still a chance to send in their images.
We are lucky that our wildlife and landscapes are so varied, from the rocky ridges of the Roaches near Leek to ancient lowland heath buzzing with rare wildlife, like Highgate Common in Wombourne.
We would especially like to receive more images of Staffordshire landscapes before the deadline.”
