Photographers go wild about Sale Festival competition…

By Peter Trollope at

Wild About Britain is the theme of this year’s photographic competition run in conjunction with Sale Festival 2018.

A spokesman for the organisters says:”Britain has some wonderfully wild places, ranging from the vast regions of the National Parks such as The Lake District and Snowdonia, to the great forest and woodland regions of the country and the wild coastal strips and beaches which border our islands.  And apart from the magnificent views and landscapes that lie within them you will also find an enormous variety of Wildlife that inhabits them. This huge diversity of birds, mammals and other animals & plants which make their home in our islands is truly amazing.  So with this theme in mind, we would like to see your pictures that you believe depicts this theme most fittingly.

‘It could be a grand panorama of wild mountains and valleys, a restful view of a remote placid lake, or a picture of a wild bird or animal scurrying about acting out its daily ritual or anything else you care to think of that depicts the theme in the way you want to interpret it.

‘There are endless examples of Wild Britain within our islands and you never have to travel far to enjoy the varied types of British countryside and wildlife, which form part of what makes Britain the place it is.

‘Every entrant will have at least one of their prints displayed in the exhibition at Sale Waterside which will run for 2 weeks from the competition prize giving on Friday June 8th

You can enter up to 4 pictures with a maximum size of 15″ x 10″ (26 x 36cm), And don’t forget there is also a junior competition for the under 16’s.
