Seeking teenage nature photographers

Young Borders photographers keen on nature are invited to enter a national competition.

The Scottish Nature Photography Awards, celebrating the country’s nature, wildlife and landscape, has several categories, including the junior section open to young people up to the age of 18.

Youngsters are invited to send up to five images taken in Scotland and the winner’s prize includes a one-day masterclass with Scottish Natural Heritage photographer Lorne Gill, who is also one of the judges.

And winning images will be part of a touring exhibition next year and will appear in a portfolio yearbook.

The awards also include an adult competition open to professional and amateur photographers and an award for students.

Entries close on November 30. For more information visit www.scottishnaturephotographyawards.com
