The GNS Annual Photographic Competition

Almost 250 entries were received this year from 31 contributors, the standard of many of the photographs entered was high and covered a diverse range of subjects. As for last year, the judging was carried out anonymously and independently by Helen and Phil Muggridge, two local professional wildlife photographers – see their work here at

From the total list of entries, up to 12 photographs were selected as finalists in each of the six categories – Any species in its Environment, Behaviour and Interaction, Habitats and Landscapes, Plants and Botanicals, Portraits and Fun & Awful Photos.

For each category a winner was then selected and finally, an overall winner judged to be the best photograph overall.

Category winners each receive a Waterstones gift voucher with an additional gift voucher for the overall winner.

The photographs entered are available to view here –

We will be running the competition again next year and invitations for entries will be sent out to
members, and by way of a short note in the next issue of GNS News (March 2023).
