Still time for young photographers to enter My Wildlife competition

The deadline for submissions to the My Wildlife photo competition for young photographers run by The Base Greenham in association with Marwell Zoo and @newburytoday has been extended to January 21.

We're so pleased that you've all been super present and in the moment over the festive break that perhaps you haven't picked up your camera or phone... but it has meant it's been rather quiet on the submission front.

We'd love to see your submissions and have enough entries to run the competition this year, so please do send them in as soon as you can.

The Base is looking for submissions from local photographers of all ages and experience levels.

Inspired by the return of the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 59 which will come to the visual arts venue from March 1 – April 14, The Base’s ‘My Wild Life’ photography competition showcases the best local talent and celebrates wildlife and the natural world.

Budding photographers of all ages and expertise can enter, whether it’s capturing an image of insects in the back garden, wildlife discovered on a family walk or snaps of a beloved pet. Entrants are asked to consider the well-being of wild creatures and ecosystems, to respect wildlife by not disturbing or moving the subjects that are being photographed. All must be authentic images of nature and therefore must not use apps or image editing software to manipulate the photo.

Finalists from two age categories, under-18s and over-18s, will be chosen by a panel of expert judges including our own @newburytoday photographer Phil Cannings and professional photographer Philip Tull and the winning entries from each category will be chosen by the public in an online vote on The Base Facebook page.

The two winning photographers will win a Family Ticket for four people to Marwell Wildlife Zoo as well as an annual ticket to The Base which gives them unlimited entry to the Gallery for a whole year. Their photographs will also be printed in the Newbury Weekly News and published on The Base and Corn Exchange’s websites and respective social media platforms; in addition, these winning entries, along with the other finalists’ images, will be displayed in The Base’s Runway Gallery for all to see and admire.

All entries must be emailed to admin@thebasegreenham.co.uk by Sunday, January 21. Visit The Base website www.thebasegreenham.co.uk for more information about the entry requirements of the competition and the upcoming exhibition Wildlife Photographer of the Year 59.
