Do you have a brilliant photo that captures a love for nature?

The National Trust is searching for inspirational images to publish in 2018.

Conservation organisation, the National Trust, has opened a photo competition to find two images that will be published in 2018 – one on its handbook, one on its member card.

Each winner will also receive a Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5m camera.

The contest is open to all photographers, whether or not you are a member of the charity.

Last year’s winning image by Paul Rook was taken at Burton Bradstock in Dorset, and was chosen from nearly 9,000 photographs.

“We had gone own to the beach after visiting my brother, who lives in Portland,” says Rook.

“I wanted to practice my photography on some ‘seagulls’. But by chance I saw [my partner] Kevan and [my sister-in-law] Antje running back from a wave.”

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘As I walked out one midsummer morning…’ and the charity is looking for pictures taken at a National Trust property that capture a real love for – and connection with – nature.

The competition is open until 3 September 2017.
