This year CMA wants to celebrate the work of countryside and greenspace professionals by collating and sharing inspirational photos of you and your colleagues at work.
We would love to see images of staff and volunteers undertaking habitat management, estate work, and wildlife survey and monitoring; leading events and school visits; engaging with visitors and volunteers and anything else which forms an interesting part of your role. This isn't a competition for photos just of wildlife or landscapes. Above all we want to see images of the people working to protect, enhance and interpret the precious countryside and greenspace in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
As an extra incentive to join in and submit an entry, we have teamed up with the Natural History Book Service (NHBS) to offer some fantastic prizes: A £100 voucher for first prize and £50 vouchers for two runners-up. Anyone familiar with NHBS will know that they offer an unrivalled range of natural history books and publications and a wide selection of field equipment, meaning there is going to be something that will appeal to everyone who enters.
The competition will run from May to the end of December 2021 and will be judged by a panel selected by the CMA Board. Entrants can submit up to three photos each.
Please ensure that you have the rights to submit the photo and that anyone featured in the photo has given their permission for it to be entered and to be used by the CMA for future communications and publicity. For full terms and conditions, please visit www.countrysidemanagement.org.uk
So keep up the good work, look out for opportunities to get snapping and the best of luck!
