Calling all Budding Photographers…!

The Seabird Centre’s first Nature Photography Exhibition will showcase some of the best amateur photography in the country. The competition is open to amateur photographers in the following four categories:

  • Wildlife Photography Age 15 and under
  • Wildlife Photography Age 16 and over
  • Landscape Photography Age 15 and under
  • Landscape Photography Age 16 and over

The Scottish Seabird Centre is an independent charity dedicated to raising awareness of wildlife and the environment. It is a world leader in wildlife viewing, using state of the art technology to bring people of all ages and abilities closer to nature. One and a quarter million people have visited the Centre since it opened in 2000.

The Seabird Centre has hosted the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year for several years and it was a natural progression to launch the first Nature Photography Competition & Exhibition this year, allowing amateur photographers the opportunity to showcase their work in public.

It was important to the Centre that young people be encouraged to enter the competition and it is hoped that there will be a good entry in the 15 and under category.

The winners will be chosen from a shortlist of 20 in each category and the winning photographs will be exhibited at the Seabird Centre from 17th November 2006 until February 2007. Winners and runners up will be chosen in each category and announced at a preview reception on 16th November. 

The photographs will be judged by a panel which will include multi-award winning wildlife photographer Laurie Campbell, a judge with BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and landscape photographer Graham Riddell. As well as receiving a prize, the winners will also have the opportunity for a day’s coaching with one of the judges.  The public will also have the opportunity to cast their vote and pick a winner from the shortlist being exhibited.
