This year we had a higher number of entries than in previous years and several new participants. Photographic committee chair John Johnson was joined by award-winning wildlife photographer Jules Cox to judge and select the winning images.
Jules is no stranger to competitions, having been asked to judge various leading photographic competitions, including the British Wildlife Photography Awards and the RSPCA’s Young Photographer Awards. His own images have been published globally and have also won recognition in a number of prestigious wildlife photography competitions.
Jules is also a BDS Photographic Ambassador and additionally runs wildlife photography workshops for those interested in learning the skills and fieldcraft needed to get close to wild deer with a camera.
