THE Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) is looking for entries for its third annual Julian Gardner Award photographic competition.

The award is named after Julian Gardner, the Sussex farmer who was killed defending his property in 2010. Last year’s winners were Martin Munn of Surrey, with his close-up picture of a ladybird caught between bright petals; and a gold-lit woodland scene from 16-year-old Christopher Page of Kent.

Both winning entrants will be awarded a hare sculpture, made possible by donations from the family and friends of Julian Gardner.

The contest can be entered by emailing no more than two photographs to before midnight on Saturday, May 31.

Entrants are encouraged to include a contact address, phone number and age with their pictures.
