As supporters of this year’s world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at M Shed, Bristol, we're launching our very own Bristol-based photography competition.
What is the ‘Wild Bristol: Winter’ competition?
We love this beautiful city and its natural wonders. So what better way to celebrate Bristol’s wild, wintery wonderland than by launching ‘Wild Bristol: Winter’; a photography competition aimed at bringing together nature-lovers, passionate photographers and avid explorers, of all ages and experience.
We’re looking for wintery wildlife and animals; breath-taking scenery and urban creatures caught on camera. Shimmering snowflakes on The Downs; prancing deer on Trooper’s Hill, and glamorous kingfishers at Chew Valley… our region has plenty to offer this winter for those seeking a stunning shot through the lens.
Share your spectacular snaps of nature with Bristol Energy for a chance of winning a set of x4 tickets to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, currently on display at M Shed, Bristol.
100% renewable electricity provider Bristol Energy is proud to be powering the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at M Shed; the most prestigious photography event of its kind, developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London.
How can I take part?
Submit your photograph by sharing it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, tagging Bristol Energy and using #BristolEnergy.
Alternatively, you can email your photo to us: email@example.com
We’re looking for authentic images of Bristolian wildlife. Please do not use apps or image editing software to manipulate your images!
What can I win?
We have a group of 4 tickets to giveaway each week for ‘Wild Bristol: Winter’ winners, between January 27th and February 23rd 2020.
Each week, we’ll pick our favourite photograph, notify the winner and share the snap with our followers. Winning photographs will be striking, original and promote the responsible enjoyment of our natural world. Winners can collect their tickets at the M Shed box office.
Why should I get involved?
On a mission to make Bristol a cleaner, greener and healthier place to live, we’re encouraging Bristolians to go green and support our city. In fact, this month we launched three new green products made of 100% green electricity and lower carbon gas, largely focussed on sourcing renewable energy sourced from UK generators.
By taking part in ‘Wild Bristol: Winter’ you’ll be contributing to an amazing community-built collection of photographs we can all enjoy – snaps that highlight how we must work together to protect the planet, combat climate change and support our city’s wildlife and areas of nature.
Let’s spread stunning shots and get Bristol talking about how lucky we are to be surrounded by such natural beauty.
