Trust launches 2019 calendar competition – and needs your photos!

Photographers are being invited to submit entries celebrating Staffordshire’s varied wildlife and landscapes for a 2019 charity calendar.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust has launched a competition to find 12 stunning images of the wildlife and landscapes from across the county for its 2019 calendar which will go on sale later this year.

The competition follows on the success of the 2017 and 2018 calendars, which saw dozens of high quality entries being submitted.

The Trust is 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 all the seasons are required for the calendar.

From bees to birds and gardens to nature reserves and living landscapes, the Trust is looking for the special species and places which people can find across the county.

The 12 best entries will feature in the 2019 calendar and winners will all receive one copy each.

Jon Owen, Press and Social Media Officer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said:

“We know there are many excellent photographers who love taking pictures of wildlife and landscapes across Staffordshire.

“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 are especially keen to see any images which epitomise Staffordshire.”

Closing date for entries is Friday 27 April 2018.
