Celebrate the diversity of flora and fauna on our estate as our Wildlife Photography Competition returns for 2017
Enter our Wildlife Photography Competition for the chance to win up to £200 Canary Wharf Gift Cards. This could be any of the numerous plant species: birds, fish, insects and small mammals which have made Canary Wharf their home – all you need to do is find it and photograph it using your smartphone or camera.
Open to all amateur photographers, this year we have an Adult Competition for those aged 18 and over, and a Junior Competition for those aged under 18. There are four Adult Competition Categories:
- Around the Streets and Gardens: How wildlife interacts around the streets, gardens and buildings of Canary Wharf. We are looking for photographs that capture the character, behaviour, and beauty of the creatures that share the environment of Canary Wharf with the people who live and work here.
- Geometric and Organic: How the botanical life of Canary Wharf provides an organic contrast to the geometric shapes and patterns on our Estate. We are looking for photographs that explore line, colour, shape, and texture to show how the geometric and the organic can complement each other.
- Wildlife and Water: The quality of our docks and ponds created in an urban environment are reflected by the variety of wildlife that relies on them to survive, hunt for food and raise families. We are looking for photographs capturing the thriving ecosystem that has developed with our watercourses.
- Dawn and Dusk:The rising and setting sun can provide opportunities for creating dramatic and mystical images and the reflective areas of Canary Wharf can enhance the potential for interesting compositions. Such settings can provide new and exciting ways of photographing wildlife.
There are no categories of entry for the junior competition.
If you’re new to the estate and not sure where the best areas for wildlife can be found, or just want some inspiration, you can download our biodiversity map which will give you some ideas.
All shortlisted entries will be displayed in an exhibition on the Adams Plaza Bridge and each Adult Competition Category Winner will win a £100 Canary Wharf Gift Card along with the winner of the Junior Competition. The Canary Wharf Wildlife Competition Winner will win a further £100 Gift Card.
For the chance to win simply complete the entry form, accept the Terms and Conditions and upload your photos by 5pm on Friday 29th September 2017.
