Winners of Scottish Seabird Centre “Nature of Britain” Photographic Competition announced

Winners of the Scottish Seabird Centre “Nature of Britain” Photographic Competition were announced  at the SAS Radisson Hotel in Edinburgh and can be viewed at www.seabird.org.

Organised by the award-winning Wild Scotland member, Scottish Seabird Centre and sponsored by the Gosling Foundation, the Radisson Hotel and Bernard Massard Wines, the competition featured categories for wildlife and landscape photography and a new category for Creative Visions of Nature. Now in its second year, the competition has quickly grown in size and reputation and this year attracted 200 entries.

The judging panel was headed up by wildlife photographer and several times winner and judge of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, Laurie Campbell and in true “X-Factor” fashion, the public also had the chance to vote for their favourites, with this score added to the overall judging.The judges’ remit was to look for an artistic and innovative approach to what people might find in their own back garden, not just a rare wildlife spectacle that only a fortunate few could ever experience! 

The prizes include a day’s coaching with wildlife photographer Laurie Campbell and landscape photographer Graham Riddell and a photographic boat trip to the Bass Rock.

Tom Brock OBE, Chief Executive of the Scottish Seabird Centre commented, “The Scottish Seabird Centre is a charity, dedicated to inspiring people to get closer wildlife and the natural environment. Staging this competition was a natural progression for us, encouraging people to get close to nature through the eye of their camera lens.”   

Entry forms for the 2008 awards will be available shortly and anyone who is interested in taking part should email info@seabird.org or call 01620 890202.
