The winners of the 2015 photo competition will be announced in our upcoming Summer Members’ Magazine in early July. The 13 winners (one cover photo and 12 months) will make up the 2016 Warwickshire Wildlife Trust calendar.
However, we couldn’t let the occasion go by without paying homage to those who came so close to being winners. Often the reason was as simple as us having already filled all three slots for ‘summer’ and having no more room for summery photos. Or even more frustratingly that we couldn’t have more than one photo by the same photographer, because often there were several amazing entries from each person. (Having said that, we did bend that rule in one instance – the cover photo is by the same photographer as the photo for one of the months. Simply put, that particular photographer’s images were just too good and we couldn’t choose just one. We make no excuses – we succumbed to the beauty! To take a look for yourself, make sure you read your members’ magazine…)
So without further ado, here’s a little photo montage of the runners up:
Hopefully you will all agree that these are absolutely stunning. There were so many more that we could have posted on this blog post, so huge thanks and congratulations to all the entrants to the photo competition this year. We hope very much that you’ll support us by buying a 2016 calendar. We’ll give details of how to pre-order a copy on our website in mid-August.
