Back by Popular Demand: Get Your Cameras Out!

Saturday, January 21st 2017

In 2016 we ran a photo competition to find beautiful pictures for the 2017 Foxglove Covert Calendar. The response we had was brilliant, with over 100 photos for our judge to choose from and the finished calendar quickly sold out! So, back by popular demand: A Photo Competition! This time to find pictures for the 2018 Foxglove Covert Calendar!

The photos should be taken on the reserve at Foxglove Covert LNR or on the surrounding moorland. We will be choosing 12 landscape format photographs to be used in the calendar, illustrating the season and/or showing some wildlife. We will also be looking for a suitable portrait format photo for the front cover.

The calendar needs pictures from different seasons – a great excuse to visit Foxglove regularly to capture the changing moods and seasons on camera! Get out soon to catch the wonders of winter, but don’t risk losing or forgetting about that brilliant picture – you can start sending them in anytime from now!

In addition to having your photos in the calendar, there will be a prize for the photos which the judges consider to be Best Adult photo and Best Child photo (16 years and under).

Please submit your photos as prints (minimum 6” x 4”) in an envelope marked “Calendar Competition” to the Foxglove Office (in the Field Centre), by post to Foxglove Covert LNR, Wathgill Camp, Downholme, Richmond, North Yorkshire, DL11 6AH or email to foxglovelnr@btinternet.com with a file size of between 1MB and 4MB and the subject line ‘Calendar Competition’ by midnight on FRIDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER 2017.

The competition is open to everyone. Please include a title and location for your photo(s), your name, contact details including a phone number and your age if 16 years or under. You can enter as many photos as you like as long as you are happy for your photo(s) to be used in the Foxglove Covert LNR Calendar and any associated publicity. All photographers will be credited. For full terms and conditions email foxglovelnr@btinternet.com.

The Water Vole and Wall butterflies, shown below, were chosen  for the 2017 calendar.
