2019 Calendar Competition

Cheshire Wildlife Trust has launched a competition to find 12 stunning images for our 2019 calendar - and we need YOUR photos!

Calling all nature lovers! We need your photos of Cheshire’s wonderful wildlife and landscapes for our 2019 calendar which goes on sale later this year.

Check for wildlife in your garden or head out into our beautiful countryside and start snapping. From bees to birds and gardens to nature reserves and living landscapes, we're looking for the special species and places you can find in our fabulous county.

Wherever you watch nature, make sure you've got your camera to capture it.


The 12 best entries will each feature as a full A4 page in our 2019 calendar and the winning photographers will receive a free copy of the calendar.

This year's lucky overall winner will see their photo on the front cover and 12 runner up photos will feature throughout the calendar.

Winners will be announced in June/July through our Facebook page and Twitter feed as well as in our Autumn 2018 membership magazine.

How to enter

You can send your images to us (a maximum of six per photographer) by email. For email entries, download an entry form by clicking the attachment below, and email it, together with your images, to calendar@cheshirewt.org.uk.

Leading wildlife photographer, Ben Hall, will be the lead judge.
