The theme of this year’s competition is ‘Into the Wild’.

The First Prize is £100 cash and the Runner Up will win a pair of reusable KeepCups.

Emma Chaplin, from the Trust, said: “We’d love to see your local wildlife shots, showing us the vibrant and varied nature of Sussex. Amaze us with the ladybirds in your garden, migrating wildfowl, macro spiders, flowers carpeting a woodland floor, colourful fungi, clouds of downland butterflies or a sleeping hedgehog in the park. Share the wild places that are special to you. It could be high on the Downs, deep in the woods, on the beach or your favourite urban nature spot. Show us how people care and want nature to be part of their lives.

In addition, the overall winning image will feature in Wildlife magazine, our monthly e-newsletter and on the Sussex Wildlife Trust’s website and social media. The winning photographer will also be offered the chance to take over the Sussex Wildlife Trust’s Instagram account for a week.”

The 2019 winner was Pretty in Pink by Maxine Dodds of Rudgwick, Horsham, with a beautiful shot of a Vole in a Foxglove. Runner up was Twilight Blue by Horsham primary school teacher Emma Varley.
