In celebration of the 100th edition of Scottish Wildlife magazine, due to be published in March 2020, we are launching a photography competition to find the best wildlife photographers amongst our membership.

The theme of the competition is ‘The Perfect Portrait’ and individuals will be separated into one of two categories based on age: Adult (18 and over) or Young Person (under 18).

The photography competition will be judged by a panel of expert judges: wildlife filmmaker and presenter Gordon Buchanan, wildlife and landscape photographer Mark Hamblin and the Country Director for People’s Postcode Lottery, Annemiek Hoogenboom.

One of the winning images will appear on the front cover of the 100th edition of Scottish Wildlife in March, whilst the other will appear in the Big Picture feature inside the magazine.
