CAMERA-TRAP RESEARCH PROJECT OF THE YEAR

Open exclusively to research projects using camera-trap technology, the winners of one of these three categories will be eligible for the overall award of Camera-Trap Research Project of the Year, with a prize of £3,000. Judges will base their selection on the quality of the research and the importance of the image to that research.

·       New Behaviour - Images taken during the course of research that show behaviour never before recorded.

·       New Range - Images taken during research that show a species never photographed before outside its known range.

·       Rare Species - Images taken during research that show a species that is rarely seen or never photographed in the wild.

CAMERA-TRAP PHOTO OF THE YEAR

The three categories require amazing camera-trap images and are open to everyone. Winners of these three categories will compete for the Camera-Trap Photographer of the Year title.

·       Animal Portraits - Images should capture the character or spirit of their subject.

·       Animal Behaviour - A compelling image that shows interesting or unusual behaviour.

·       British Wildlife - Amazing images that capture the spirit and behaviour of British wildlife.

The winners will be published in the December 2014 issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine and on the BBC Wildlife Magazine website, http://www.discoverwildlife.com and will receive a Lowepro Flipside Sport 15L camera pack, worth £122.

The closing date for entries is 30 June 2014, and all photos must be submitted online at www.discoverwildlife.com/competitions. Full competition rules and further information can be found also at http://www.discoverwildlife.com/competitions.
