Taking inspiration from Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Manx National Heritage is delighted to invite you to enter our new ‘Wild Mann’ Nature Photography Competition.
We invite professional and non-professional photographers, of all ages, from all over the world, to join our contest. Send in your best pictures from this year, last year or years ago showcasing the Isle of Man’s natural environment. The competition will culminate with the category winners and highly commended runners up going on show in a temporary exhibition at the Manx Museum in Douglas, and the opening will coincide with the start of Manx Wildlife Week on the 26th April 2014.
You don’t have to have a fancy camera, mobile devices can be used, but we have provided some advice on how to make sure that the photo will have good enough resolution to be made into a large print for the gallery.
This is a competition to celebrate the natural world, so we are not accepting images featuring farm animals, zoo animals, family pets, and/or cultivated plants. Something to consider when submitting a photo – does your image tell a story? Judges will consider technical merit, content and composition, imagination and style. No wildlife must be harmed in the taking of a photo.
It’s free to enter, there are different categories and we also encourage our young budding photographers to enter in our junior section. There is a prize for the overall winner of a £250 voucher to spend at Morrison Photos Ltd. and the deadline for the competition is the 4th March 2024. If you have any questions there is a dedicated email address: email@example.com and as high resolution images take up a lot of memory we are asking people to submit them via WeTransfer here: https://wetransfer.com/.
Please note all digital files must be submitted as JPEGs, saved at a high-quality setting of at least 3000 pixels along the longest dimension or 180 pixels per inch (ppi). No borders, watermarks or signatures should be included.
