Our free photography contest recommendation of the day!
The competition was launched in memory of Julian Gardner, a Sussex farmer and lifelong supporter of the GWCT, who was tragically killed while defending his property in October 2010. A very kind donation from Julian’s family and friends enabled the GWCT to buy the two trophies, which are presented to the winners to display for the next year, as well as prints of their award-winning photographs.
The standard of the competition proved incredibly high this year. The winners and runners-up were decided by the GWCT’s three regular judges: James Swyer (Press and Publications Manager), Joel Holt (Communications Officer) and Dr Jen Brewin (Writer and Research Specialist).
The GWCT would like to congratulate the winners and runners-up, and to thank all the entrants for making it such an outstanding year for the Julian Gardner Awards.
The competition is open to all amateur photographers, not just our members, and is related to our research and advisory work – taking in all aspects of the UK countryside, including the people who live and work there, game, wildlife, all the various habitats and of course landscape.
There are two categories:
The top three winning photos from each section will be printed in our membership magazine Gamewise and featured on our website. The images will be judged by James Swyer (Press and Publications Manager), Joel Holt (Communications Officer) and Dr Jen Brewin (Writer and Research Specialist).
