Last chance to vote in wildlife photography competition

Voting closes on Monday 31 October for the public to vote for their favourite photograph from 12 finalists in Sussex Wildlife Trust’s wildlife Photography Competition.

The Trust were looking for 12 stunning photographs capturing the best of the wildlife and landscapes of Sussex to feature in an online calendar that will be on display at the Trust’s AGM on 12th November and at the Booth Museum of Natural History, Brighton during 2023.

Sussex Wildlife Trust Photography Competition judges, headed up by local wildlife expert and professional photographer David Plummer, recently had the difficult task of selecting 12 finalists from over 600 excellent entries. Now it is over to the public to look through the final twelve and vote for their favourite here

The diverse range of photos feature a variety of subjects, different species, seasons and styles. They include poppies in the sunset, birds, insects and butterflies; a leaping fox, a Roe deer in the bluebells; shooting stars and snow in Ashdown Forest.

The twelve finalists come from around East and West Sussex, including: Brighton, Haywards Heath, Henfield, Storrington, Pulborough, Lewes and Seaford.

The judging panel said:

“A range of local wildlife shots showed the vibrant and varied nature of Sussex throughout the seasons and the wild places that are special to the people who entered. We felt that the entries showed us how much Sussex people care and want nature to be part of their lives.”

Voting is open online until 31st October and the overall winner will be announced early November.

Sussex Wildlife Trust acts to protect the wildlife and the natural environment across Sussex.  They create opportunities for people of all ages to learn about nature and connect with it.
