2010 Shetland Photo Competition

Promote Shetland and Shetland Wildlife - sponsors of the 1st prize - are pleased to announce the 2010 Shetland Photographic Competition. The competition is open to resident and visiting amateur photographers. We are looking for unique and inspiring images that capture your imagination and record a moment in time.

We want you to capture breathtaking and original images which reflect and portray the outstanding wildlife Shetland has to offer. Subjects may include anything that is wild: birds, wild flowers, whales & dolphins, otters, seals etc etc. Please do not submit images of captive wildlife or livestock (sheep, ponies etc etc). Landscapes which portray wildlife in a natural setting (eg. Seabird colonies) are acceptable. Photographs must be taken in Shetland between 15 May and 30th October 2010. All entries will be judged by myself and the Promote Shetland team. The winner will be announced soon after the competition closes on 5 November 2010.

1st Prize - a superb 7-day photography holiday donated by Shetland Wildlife to be taken in June 2011 - worth over £1,000.00 !!!

2nd Prize – Full day otter watching experience in Shetland for 2 people, donated by Shetland Otters

3rd Prize - a signed copy of Simon King's new 'Shetland Nature Diaries' book
