Sheffield Wildlife Trust has announced today that they will be running an exciting new environment & wildlife Photographic Competition. The competition aims to get more people outdoors to enjoy Sheffield's wildlife, open countryside and urban green spaces. The deadline for entries is January 31st 2005, giving people plenty of time to get out and about with their cameras.
The winning photographs will be displayed on supertrams and tram stops across the city. A selection from all photographs entered will be made into a short visual projection to be shown in the studio space at the Site Gallery, Sheffield's leading contemporary art gallery. Other prizes include free use of facilities at Site Gallery, a camera bag donated by Sheffield Photographic Centre and various wildlife & photography books.
The competition is being kindly sponsored by JW Northend Printers Ltd, and is supported by the Site Gallery, Supertram, Exposed magazine Sheffields ultimate entertainment guide, Sheffield Photographic Centre and SheffieldForum.co.uk.
The categories are:
1. Wild spaces, smiling faces (families enjoying their local parks & woodlands, people exploring the nature reserves, children playing games in the environment etc.)
2. Landscape views, seasonal hues (views across Sheffield & the Peak District showing the seasons, sunset/sunrise, your favourite country walk, etc.)
3. Wildlife creatures, animal features (birds, bats, badgers etc. either close up - featured on an eye or tail, or the whole animal.)
