Winners unveiled for Seabird Volunteers’ Nature Photography Awards

Seascapes, stunning gardens and wildlife wonders are all winners for the Scottish Seabird Centre’s Volunteer-run Nature Photography Awards. In its inaugural year, the relaunched competition was open to amateur photographers who are members, staff or volunteers of the Scottish Seabird Centre.

Judged by Ian Goodall, of North Berwick Photographic Society, the shortlisted images were on display in the Discovery Centre, with a range of photos in the following categories: Wildlife; Landscape – British; Landscape – Overseas; Environment. The images were open to public vote until 20 January, with a whole host of fantastic prizes up for grabs from companies including the Macdonald Marine Hotel & Spa, Royal Yacht Britannia, ScotRail, Edinburgh Zoo and Blairdrummond Safari Park.

Ian Goodall said: “The quality of the images submitted for the competition was quite outstanding and it was tough selecting the best images. I have been inspired by many of the photographs submitted and congratulations to all the winners. A big thanks to the Seabird Volunteers for asking me to judge.”

Sandy Forrest, Chair of the Seabird Volunteers Group, said: “The photography competition was initially the idea of one of our long-standing volunteers, Mary Buglass. For this year’s competition, we wanted to take the competition back to its roots, just open to Seabird volunteers, staff and members. Thank you to everyone who entered and who has supported us with prizes.”

The winners in each category are:

Wildlife – Abbie Marland from Longniddry (member)
Landscape Overseas – Dawn Kane from Dunbar (staff)

Landscape British – Murray Roden from Aberlady (member)

Environment – Dora Roden from Aberlady (staff)

Public Vote – Sue Green from Gorebridge (member)
