Wild Scotland Photography Competition #KeepScotlandWild – May 2021

What a crazy few months it’s been – and all throughout the pandemic, various inspiring pictures of Scotland’s wild places have kept us going. Dreaming of when travelling to our favourite spots is possible again.

As much as we love seeing pictures of the great outdoors – of people enjoying sailing, gorge walking, hiking and sea kayaking, seeing snaps of Scotland’s beautiful mountains and pictures of Scotland’s wondrous wildlife – we love seeing people enjoying these things responsibly even more. That’s why we’re hosting a wee photography competition this May.

Full competition details below…


Up for grabs are the perfect items for plastic-free and leave no trace packed lunch when you’re out and about. We’re giving away a 21oz flask from the brand Hydro Flask and a reusable beeswax wrapper from BeeBee & Leaf.



What do you have to do to be eligible to win these items? Simple! Share a picture on Instagram that you’ve taken either of people enjoying Scotland’s outdoors actively and responsibly or of Scottish landscapes, nature and wildlife. Tag your picture with the hashtag #keepscotlandwild to enter. The competition is open between the 3rd of May and midnight on the 31st of May.

Entries are welcome from all UK residents, but all images must have been photographed in Scotland. 

All entries need to feature the competition hashtag #keepscotlandwild.


Upon the closing date, a shortlist of 10 people will be selected by the Wild Scotland team. All those on the shortlist will be contacted via social media to supply a high-resolution file for final judging, along with detailed caption information.

The organisers cannot be held responsible for messages that do not arrive e.g. due to going into spam folders.
