“Thanks to Hugh Rowlands for a lovely image”

The Red Squirrel Survival Trust’s annual photographic competition is now open for entries.

The Red Squirrel Survival Trust (RSST) is again looking for beautiful images that capture the iconic endangered species through the four seasons. Four winners will be selected from each of the Open categories (‘Spring’, ‘Summer’, ‘Autumn’ and ‘Winter’) along with an overall winner. There will an extra category for young photographers aged 18 and under.  Alongside our winners, many images are used throughout the year for awareness campaigns and an additional set of images will be chosen to form the RSST calendar. Furthermore a number are used in slide materials for education purposes, always with the photographers name credited.
Submissions: Photos can be submitted via email/WeTransfer to from 30 November 2023 AND DON’T FORGET TO TELL US WHICH SEASONAL CATEGORY YOU ARE ENTERING YOUR IMAGES FOR.
