The 2017 Junior Wildlife Photo Competition attracted 79 entries from young people aged between 9 and 16.

Judging has now taken place and the results were announced at the Prestwood Nature AGM on 7th November.    The Judges were impressed by the very high standard of photography, both technical and composition.     Six certificates were awarded,  two gold, two silver and two bronze.  

The winners are shown in the slide show below.  Click on the coloured dots to move from one picture to the next.

Gold Award

Aphids on Poppy


Annie Sutcliffe aged 13

The judges were particularly impressed by the sharpness of the image which shows beautifully the hairs on the bud and stem. You can even see the aphids on the stem. The out of focus background brings emphasise to the flower.
