WIN at our Winter Walks Photography Competition
It’s January, it’s winter and we’re in lockdown – but we are permitted to safely take daily local exercise which is so important and beneficial for our mental and physical wellbeing.
Nature can also be incredibly beautiful at this time of year, and we want to see your views and photos of your winter walks! Our local communities have many beautiful spots – but it can be just as much about wildlife or kids having fun on your walks as it could be about vistas of nature.
All you need to do is email your favourite Winter Walks photo to email@example.com and tell us where in Gloucestershire it was taken and your age (or whether you are over or under 16 if you'd rather not be exact!) by Friday 19th February 2021 to be in with the chance of winning:
The competition will be judged by our friends at Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, and the prizes can be redeemed at the GWT Robinswood Hill Cafe*.
Terms and conditions:
- Closing date for entries Friday 19 February 2021.
- No alternative cash prize will be offered. Vouchers will be issued to redeem the prizes.
- The judges decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
- By entering, you give permission for Gloucestershire Gateway Trust to use the image you enter.
- Images should be submitted as jpeg files, with a maximum resolution of 10MB.
Have fun but we urge you to please stay safe, make sure you understand and adhere to all government guidelines, stay local and take care to ensure your own safety and the safety of others whilst on Winter Walks.
*Please note the Robinswood Hill Café is currently closed but will be reopening shortly.
Things to look out for...
GWT's Engagement Manager Nicky told us: "This can be a really good time of year to look out for birds, as most trees don’t have any leaves and animals will be out and about more desperately trying to find food. It can be a bit easier to spot birds at this time of year. Winter visitors to look out for are Blackcaps and Redwings."
