Animal snappers contest opens

Marwell Zoo on the lookout for 12 stunning photographs for their calendar that show the beauty and character of their wonderful animals.

From portraits to action shots of the tiniest partula snail through to the tallest giraffe, if you have managed to get the perfect angle they want to hear from you.

This year, the competition has been split into categories: Birds (2 winners), Big cats (2 winners), Large mammals (3 winners, Small mammals (2 winners), Invertebrates (1 winner), Reptiles and fish (2 winners). The overall winner will have the privilege of their credited picture featuring on the calendar’s front cover and they will win prizes as well.

The top prize includes a photography experience day worth £350 plus an annual membership so you can come back and use your new skills as many times as you like.

The 2024 calendar will feature 12 photographs in total so the 11 runners up will each get to see their photograph in the calendar too. They’ll also each win two adult day tickets to the zoo and a copy of the calendar as a keepsake.

If you love photography and would like to be in with a chance of winning, you can submit up to five pictures to the dedicated Flickr group. Creating a Flickr account is completely free.
