Photo Contest

Welcome to the photo contest pages.

This is your opportunity to share your images on our website.

You’ve no doubt marvelled at our professional photographers’ pictures in the magazine and now on www.discoverwildlife.com, but we know that you are a talented bunch with some astonishing photos and we would love to see them.

Simply upload your images each month and then vote for the images you like best.

Each month the BBC Wildlife team and an independent party’s favourite images are featured in the Your Feedback pages of the magazine, may be showcased in our weekly e-newsletter and may feature as our #photooftheweek on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The BBC Wildlife team, and an independent party, may also choose up to 20 images, which will be published in photo contest online galleries at www.discoverwildlife.com

The overall winning image will be chosen by the BBC Wildlife team, and an independent party, and will feature as the main image of the online photo contest gallery after the contest has closed.

We can’t wait to see what you can do.

Please read our photo contests terms and conditions before entering.
