Photo Competition 2019


Many of our members nowadays carry their cameras and take excellent photographs around the Reserve. We would like to give them an opportunity to show them to other members by way of a light-hearted competition at our AGM.

Get snapping or sort through your existing images and enter now.

Deadline 1 Feb 2020

After reading the rules, send your photos to


1. Only Members may participate. (Committee Members may not enter).

2. All entries must be the entrants personal work.

3. There will be four sections/categories. They are birds, nature (excluding birds), seasons and a youth category *for the under 16s (allowing any photographs described by the three previous categories in this one). The ‘youth’ must be living in the ‘Household’ of a member.

4. Participants may enter up to 3 photographs per section hence the maximum entries per person will be nine, and just three for the youth category. Note the youth section will only take place if we have a minimum of 5 entrants.

5. All photographs must have been taken in/from publicly accessible places from outside the reserve boundary (this may include Manor Farm workings and river from the river path) or from the hides and paths to the hides.

6. The photographs can be sized as the entrant wishes but must be small enough to be sent by email. They will be viewed on a large screen so (eg when cropping), take that into account. Please email them to

7. Two judges from the MGLG Committee will select the finalists and discuss the merits of the images at the AGM. They will choose the winners of each section and the members will choose the overall competition winner.

8. Images submitted to the competition may be used by the Committee on the website, Facebook page, newsletter and for publicity as the Committee see fit. Copyright will be retained by the photographer.

9. Images will be anonymized before the judges view them to avoid any personal bias.

10. Final date for submission of entries will be 1 February 2020.
