Thank you to everyone who entered the 2016 Amateur Wildlife Photography Competition. The standard this year was exceptional, making it really challenging for our judges to select their favourites.

The images never fail to surprise, delight and inspire and now you can enjoy a selection of them every day of the year in a new GWT/Cotswold Life calendar! Take a look at the winning entries below!

Congratulations to the overall competition winner, Ian Boyd, who has won a weekend stay in Eckington Manor and as part of the stay will have the opportunity of a personalised workshop with top wildlife photographer Iain Green (Wildlife Wonder).

Our 2017 judges were;

  • Roger Mortlock CEO GWT
  • Iain Green, Wild Wonder Photography
  • Candia McKormack, Deputy Editor of Cotswold Life. 

The Theme for the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust & Cotswold Life 2016 Wildlife Photographic Competition is The Cotswolds through the Year, and rest assured even though the title is ‘Cotswolds’ the magazine covers the Forest of Dean and surrounding counties too!
