Canary Wharf Group invites you to take part in their Wildlife Photography Competition which encourages photographers to celebrate the diversity of flora and fauna.

Now in its fourth year, the competition is open to all budding photographers to compete for a prize worth up to £1,000 Canary Wharf Gift Cards.

There are both adult and junior competitions with the adult competition comprising four categories; ‘Around the Streets and Gardens’, ‘Close-up and Personal with Nature’, ‘Geometric and Organic’, and ‘Wildlife and Water’. There are no separate categories for the junior competition.

Our judges will review all entries and select a shortlist of 18 entries, 12 from the adult competition and 6 from the junior competition.

Judging will consider a number of factors, including composition, originality and public appeal. The overall competition winner will be one which the judges believe is the most compelling representation of wildlife on the Estate.

All shortlisted entries will be displayed in an exhibition at Adams Plaza Bridge this autumn, and this year we also introduce the Director’s Choice award; a prize of £250 Canary Wharf Gift Card will be given to an entrant whose picture is chosen by the Canary Wharf Group Directors.

To enter, applicants need to submit their images by 5pm Monday 28 September 2018 and this year, the competition to entries is open via Instagram too. Entrants are required to post their photographs tagging, and following @canarywharflondon and using the hashtag #CWwildlife18 and are also required to add the image title and category entered.

Last year’s award for the ‘Wildlife and Water’ category and overall winter was presented to Letty Clark with her strong yet playful photo ‘Sammy Strikes a Pose’ (pictured right), captured near North Dock.
