Entries can be images of species (both fauna and flora) and habitats (including their landscape setting) found on operational quarries, partly or fully restored sites or any site plant.
The competition is open until 17 September 2019 and any photographs entered must have been taken between 1 January 2018 and 16 September 2019 to allow all the seasons and different wildlife to be captured.
Winners will be announced and images showcased at the MPA Quarries and Nature event in London on 23 October 2019. The first, second and third prizes will be vouchers for photographic equipment to the value of £500, £250 & £100.
A flyer/poster for advertising the competition to employees is available here. Please put this on company notice boards in offices at sites and also include the information in company newsletters and magazines.
The flyer for the Volunteers category is available here. Please circulate this to your partners from wildlife and nature conservation organisations so that they can promote the Competition to their volunteers.
You can enter a maximum of 5 images (between 1MB and 5MB each in size) which should be sent as separate emails direct to MPA at email@example.com – please read terms and conditions below.
