Children in Exeter are being invited to submit photographs of wildlife and wild spaces in the city as part of Exeter City Council and the Devon Wildlife Trust’s Exeter Wild City project.
The competition runs until the end of May 2011 when there will be an exhibition of the best entries. It is open to all school age children within Exeter. The winners will receive prizes sponsored by Exeter Phoenix and AS Watersports.
Each entry needs to include the photographer’s name, age and school along with no more than 20 words about why the picture describes a ‘wild city’. All entries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Paul Martin, DWT’s Education Officer said: “There are so many great spaces in Exeter for wildlife. We want to inspire children to look and explore what’s around them and record the best bits they find and send them in! This exciting competition is part of our education strand of the Exeter Wild City project and it’s vital for us to help develop children’s relationship with local nature so they will always value it.”
