Sponsored by The Cameron Bespolka Trust, the Young Bird Photographer of the Year competition aims to encourage and recognise the younger generation of birders and photographers. Specifically for those under the age of 18, the deadline for the competition is midnight on Wednesday 30th November and further details can be found on the competition website.
The Cameron Bespolka Trust very kindly funds our monthly Young Naturalists group at Blashford, specifically for 13 to 17 year olds with an interest in wildlife and the outdoors. Cameron Bespolka was a keen and active birder and photographer who was tragically killed in an accident in 2013 at the age of 16. The Cameron Bespolka Trust was established in his memory to support the many different causes close to his heart.
Many of our Young Naturalists are keen photographers and a number of them will be entering! If you know of any budding young photographers, please do spread the word…
For everyone else, there’s always the main Bird Photographer of the Year Competition!
