One week to go until the moving begins, so technically this blog hasn't started yet (which means you can't read this, honest ;o), but I've heard about a competition I want to enter and wanted to make a note of it while I remember.
Scottish Natural Heritage is holding a photography competition as part of their annual Biodiversity week (19th-25th May). The theme is 'Natural Inspiration' and entrants are asked to capture an image of nature on digital cameras and email the photo as a jpeg attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'photo contest' in the subject line. Entries must be original, have a title and include information about the Scottish location and the name and contact details of the photographer.
The closing date is 31st July. Full rules and regs plus the top 30 pictures from last year at http://www.snh.org.uk/biodiversityweek/photo_contest.asp and there are some fabulous prizes - 1st place gets a day with professional wildlife photographer Neil McIntyre, 2nd place gets a whale and dolphin-watching trip from the Isle of Mull and 3rd place is a year's subscription to BBC Wildlife magazine.
