Hone your photography skills at Wild Place Project

Visitors are invited to get snappy at Wild Place Project this May half term, as budding photographers have the chance to join a really wild competition. 

In collaboration with award-winning wildlife photographer Oliver Smart, the Wild Photo Competition opened on May 25 and encourages visitors to engage with the landscape, native species and animals at Wild Place.

Oliver has created a series of online classes that can be viewed on the Wild Place Project website, to hone their skills before capturing the perfect shot.

For those looking to capture something very rare, look out for Wild Place Project’s young wolverine kit, Eunice. 

Eunice, is one of just 12 wolverines in the UK – three of which, Eunice, her mother, Alice and father, Novo, call Wild Place Project home. Her birth was particularly exciting as wolverines became extinct in the wild in Britain more than 8,000 years ago.

The Wild Photo Competition is open to everyone and has four different categories, including Native Wildlife, Landscapes and Plants, Our Amazing Animals and People and Wildlife.

The deadline for entries is 11 September 2022.

A shortlist of entries will be put in front of Oliver for judging once the competition closes and winning photographs will be showcased to visitors at Wild Place Project, and turned into retail products, including postcards and tea towels. 

To book tickets to Wild Place Project please go to www.wildplace.org.uk.
