Biodiversity From My Window

Photography Contest

In this time of isolation, we cannot wander afar, but curious creatures have chosen to move closer than ever before into 'our territory'. We want you to help us record this time in our lives, to celebrate the freedom humans have denied the wild.

The Sanctuary Nature Foundation invites all professional, amateur, and hobby photographers to submit photographs that capture the thriving natural world while we humans are incarcerated.

Spend time at your window, backyard, or private garden, without venturing out of your safe domain. There are birds about. Flowering trees in bloom. Night skies lit by a million stars. Distant mountains are now visible. Wild creatures that tentatively (or boldly) visit your turf.

The best entries will be published in Sanctuary's June 2020 issue.

Winning images will also be presented with Award Certificates and Merit Certificates, sent to all those whose images were chosen for display on our website.
