2011 Shetland Photo Competition

Promote Shetland and Shetland Wildlife - sponsors of the 1st prize - are pleased to announce the 2011 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. Please do not submit images of captive wildlife or livestock (sheep, ponies etc). Landscapes which portray wildlife in a natural setting (eg. Seabird colonies) are acceptable. Photographs must be taken in Shetland between 1st February 2011 and 31st March 2012. All entries will be judged by Hugh Harrop and the Promote Shetland team. The winner will be announced soon after the competition closes on 5 April 2012.

1st Prize - a superb 7-day photography holiday donated by Shetland Wildlife to be taken in June 2012 - worth over £1,000.00 !!!

2nd Prize - A delicious Shetland hamper from the Shetland Fudge Company

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