2018 Photography Competition

The UK Butterflies 2018 Annual Photography Competition is now open for entries! In keeping with the online nature of the UK Butterflies website, the competition itself will be conducted entirely over the web. The competition closes on November 30th and the winning photos will be announced in early December. The overall winner will receive a copy of The Video Guide to the Butterflies of Britain and Ireland (DVD) which has been kindly donated by NatureGuides.

Entering Your Photos

You must be a member of the UK Butterflies forums to submit your photos. To register, access the UK Butterflies forums, click on the Register button in the top right of the menu bar, and then fill in your details. Your membership will be activated once it has been checked by an administrator.

You may contribute up to 3 photos in total, each of which should be placed in the appropriate competition category. You may submit 3 photos in the same category, 2 photos in one category and the third in another, or a single photo in three different categories. All photos must have been taken in the wild.


Judging will be conducted by an independent panel, and their decision is final.

Good luck!
