what3birds?
Photography Competition

The competition is now closed

The contest encourages photographers to capture images of beautiful yet at-risk British songbirds to help raise awareness of the 50% decline in UK songbirds in 50 years.

Prizes include a Fujinon Camera & Lenses worth £2,000, bundles of bird-related gifts and a photography mentoring session.

Theme:  There are five main categories and entries should depict songbirds and other small birds from the UK (resident and migratory).

We are particularly encouraging entries showing the at-risk birds included in our what3birds? list of rapidly declining species:

We encourage people of all ages, both urban and rural, to get outdoors and appreciate exquisite birdsong whilst they snap away using the phone-camera or professional kit.  The competition is open to people of ALL abilities because all of us can learn the value of these precious species, many of which are now at risk from extinction.  Anyone can win, and entering will help keep our dawn chorus alive!
