Kent Wildlife Trust Photography Competition:

Kent Wildlife Trust are running a free photography competition this year and we were wondering if it is the sort of thing that our members might be interested in entering. Entrants are encouraged to submit their best images in the categories of fauna, flora, landscape and marine as well as a junior category.

The competition closes on the 30th of November and more information and how to enter can be found at: https://www.kentwildlifetrust.org.uk/get-involved/photography-competition.
