Time to put forward your best wildlife photos for Wild Marlow’s photo competition 2024

Budding young photographers and experienced amateur ‘snappers’ in Marlow are invited to take part in Wild Marlow’s bi-annual wildlife photo competition. Entry is free, and there’s a total of £300 in prize money to be won.

The competition, supported by Marlow Camera Club, is open to everyone, of all ages and abilities — except professional photographers. It’s also a perfect chance for children to get involved with wildlife.

“Wild Marlow’s Photo Competition is hugely popular,” Verity West of Wild Marlow said. “We’re particularly interested in the children’s pictures, so do encourage your children to get creative with their cameras!

“The judges are looking forward to some fabulous pictures of Marlow’s wide range of wildlife. We’re hoping for even more entries this time – so please get out your cameras and enter.”

The judges are looking for still photos – colour or black and white – taken by camera, smartphone or tablet, and the pictures must be taken within the Marlow area (SL7). Pictures can be taken in any season, and there are three categories: primary school age, secondary school age, and adult.

The best photos in each category will be featured at the 2024 Wild Marlow photo exhibition and in the Wild Marlow 2025 calendar.

Detailed terms and conditions can be found here and entries should be emailed to wildmarlowphoto@gmail.com.

Photos should be submitted according to the period they are taken, with the following deadlines applying.

  • 1. July, August, September, and October – submit by the end of October 2023.
  • 2. November, December, and January – submit by the end of January 2024.
  • 3. February, March, and April – submit by the end of April 2024.
  • 4. May, June, July, and August – submit by the end of August 2024.
