Calling all wildlife artists and photographers

Previous GWCT NotecardThe Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) is giving you the chance to show your creative side and design one of their new notecards.

The forever popular illustrated notecards are running low in stock, so the GWCT has decided to run a competition for their followers to design something new.

The GWCT are looking for all artists and photographers to send in their wildlife work. The top 10 entries will be selected by Peter Thompson, GWCT advisor and keen photographer, in the first week of June. GWCT members and the public will then be invited to vote for their favourite by 30th June.

The three most popular entries will be announced at BBC Countryside Live and be used as covers for a brand new set of limited edition notecards. Winners will also be presented with a print of their art work.

So it’s time to dust off those paints, dig out your cameras and get those perfect winter and spring images into the GWCT.

How to enter
Simply email your work to rbeeson@gwct.org.uk or tweet them to @gameandwildlife.

Competition rules
Entries are limited to one per person. Entries must not have been offered for sale or have won other competitions and they must have been taken or created in the UK. Images of zoo and captive animals will not be considered. Only digital entries supplied as high-quality JPEGs (a minimum size of 1MB, maximum 6MB) will be considered.

By submitting any images, you agree to grant the GWCT a perpetual royalty-free licence for use in our publications, on our website and in promotional material. The author will be credited where possible.
