Capture Northern Ireland's amazing wildlife and wild places with your camera and enter our ‘Nature Matters’ Photographic Competition this year.

The Competition
The competition is open to everyone, with 12 categories in total, including Nature in Flight, Under Water and Nature and You, as well as 2 Budding Photographer categories for the Under 18’s. The only restriction is that the photographs must be taken in Ulster. A panel of Judges will pick 12 Category Winners and a Public Vote will decide on the Overall Winner. Closing date for entries is 21st July 2014.


The Categories
There are 12 categories in total - see individual descriptions below.

The Individual Category prizes have been kindly sponsored by organisations including Alive Surf School, Black & Lizars, Denman, Dive Skool, DV Diving, Jackson Sports, the Sunflower Bar, Belfast and Wildlife Watch (each prize to the value of £100.00). Winners will also receive a 2015 ‘Nature Matters’ Calendar, featuring the winning images, and an invitation to the Opening of the ‘Nature Matters’ Photographic Exhibition at Belfast City Hall in August.

The Overall Winner of  the 'Nature Matters' 2014 Photography Competition will be decided by a Public Vote once the 12 Individual Category Winners have been chosen by the Judges. This prize has been kindly sponsored by Black & Lizars (retail value £300.00)

Self Pity

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.
