A cash prize and the chance for your photo to appear in a calendar awaits the winner of a competition.

Sussex Wildlife Trust is looking for the best and most awe-inspiring wildlife photographs to be featured in its 2016 online calendar.

The photos can be of anything, as long as they follow the theme ‘My Wild Sussex’.

The trust says choose somewhere that is special to you - the Downs, the woods, or even the wildlife you find in your own back garden.

The winner will recieve the first prize of £100 cash and the runner-up will receive a set of four Mark Greco wildlife mugs.

The pictures from the 12 finalists selected by the Trust’s judges will be featured in their online 2016 calendar.

The overall winner will be chosen by members of the public and the photo will feature in their member’s magazine, online enews and on their website.

You can enter up to five images, they must be landscape and no bigger than 1MB in size. The images must be digital- no slides or prints will be accepted.

The closing date for the competition is the September 30 2015.

You can upload your images to: sussexwildlifetrust.org.uk/discover/photo-competition, or post a CD to: Richard Cobden, Photography Competition, Sussex Wildlife Trust, Woods Mill, Henfield, West Sussex BN5 9SD
