KEEN snappers with an eye for nature are encouraged to take part in a new biodiversity photography competition.
The competition is being run by Warwick District Council and there are two categories – one for those aged 17 and under, and those aged 18 and over. One winner from each category will receive a £100 One4all high street voucher.
Seasoned photographers, and those who simply enjoy snapping pictures on their phone, are welcome to submit their best shot that captures the theme of ‘Biodiversity in Warwick District’.
Biodiversity is the variety of all life on earth – animals, plants, fungi and even micro-organisms like bacteria. It provides everything in nature that we need to survive including oxygen, food, clean water, medicine, and shelter.
WDC climate spokesperson Coun James Kennedy said: “This is an exciting opportunity to capture the rich natural environment of Warwick district, and to engage with our residents on the importance of developing, supporting and enhancing the ecology of our local area.
“I look forward to seeing the variety of images and am sure it will be a tough selection process for our judging panel.”
The competition supports the development of WDC’s Biodiversity Action Programme and runs until Sunday November 5.
