Judging Scottish Nature Photography Award 2020
I’m thrilled to have been asked to help judge the tenth anniversary of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards, alongside co-organiser of the Award Niall Irvine and wildlife photographer Ron McCombe. The award is a wonderful celebration of Scotland’s environment, wildlife and wild places and I feel honoured to be a part of it. Together with the other judges I will be looking for originality, creativity and technique in the entries and look forward to bringing my own particular eye for landscape photography to the judging table.
The Scottish Nature Photography Awards photographic competition was launched in 2010 to provide a platform to celebrate Scotland as a key destination for nature photographers and to acknowledge the excellence of the photographic work that is undertaken here. The annual competition invites entries of images taken in Scotland by professional or amateur photographers from around the world and covers wildlife, landscape, botanical, abstract and environmental subjects. My book Winter in Glen Lyon was runner up in the Photography Nature Book category in 2014.
The categories will cover Scottish wildlife, landscape, botanical, abstract and environmental subjects. This year there is also a slot for short film entries for the Scottish Nature Video Award. Entries are invited from the 10th of September to the 30th of November 2019.
