The Wild Scotland photography competition, promoting responsible tourism is due to end on the 31st of May, with judges convening on the 3rd of June to select the lucky winner. The entries so far have been incredible, and we’ve been so inspired by seeing Scotland’s incredible landscapes, nature and wildlife in action.

Participants are encouraged to share pictures on Instagram either of people enjoying Scotland’s outdoors actively and responsibly or of Scottish landscapes, nature and wildlife along with the hashtag #keepscotlandwild. The winner will receive the perfect items for plastic-free and leave no trace packed lunch. We’re giving away a 21oz flask from the brand Hydro Flask and a reusable beeswax wrapper from BeeBee & Leaf. Full competition details here.

Wild Scotland have sourced 4 judges from our membership base to select the winner from a shortlisted ten pictures. The judging panel has been chosen for their extensive photography & marketing experience in the outdoor tourism sector.
