A WILDLIFE trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary by launching a photography competition.
Amateur snappers are being encouraged to take shots of some of the beautiful and diverse wildlife managed by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and the 12 winning photos will feature in its 2012 calendar.
The wildlife charity is part of a nationwide network of 47 local charities and has the support of its 28,000 members.
The charity’s aim is to protect natural heritage, helping it to flourish.
And this is what the organisers want photographers to capture in their pictures.
The winner will get to spend £150 at Castle Cameras and have their photo on the front of the calendar which will be on sale at Christmas.
Budding photographers can download a top tips leaflet designed by Castle Cameras which shows the basics to taking great photos.
The closing date for entries is July 31.
