Island Photographers are being urged to Go Wild with their cameras on Wight in the Isle of Wight Councils One Island Magazine.
The feature article not only launches this brand spanking new category in the annual Isle of Wight Photographer of the Year Competition, but provides many valuable details on where and how you can capture a winning image.
It’s a very small world – Go Wild on Wight is excellent category for budding wildlife photographers just starting out or indeed consummate professionals with entries expected to depict ‘THE NATURAL WORLD’ in full colour from the Isle of Wight.
With a wealth of photographic subjects on our doorstep, which anyone with any type of camera can capture. Young and old photographers will hopefully be inspired to get out and about across the Island as this category emphasises that knowing your home patch and your subject is more important than the camera you use.
Make the everyday extraordinary – get intimate with wildlife and bring the natural world that little bit closer to home. Using your skills, celebrate our Island’s biodiversity by exploring your local patch and uncovering nature’s hidden or little known treasures.
For those photographers in a quandry as to what is biodiversity?
Biodiversity is wildlife – the variety of life and its processes; including animals, plants, humans and all living things, the differences among them, the communities and ecosystems in which they occur, and the ecological and evolutionary processes that keep them functioning, yet ever changing and adapting.
The ‘It’s a very small world – Go Wild on Wight in conjunction with the Annual Isle of Wight Photographer of the Year (IWPOY) Competition 2009 theme of ‘It’s a Small World’. Both categories are free to enter and we particularly hope to encourage young people to get involved. Who knows, with a little knowledge and forethought, your composition and originality could be the key to a winning shot.
Get snapping the IWPOY competition (both categories) close on 18th October 2009 after which the Judges will choose the winning images and winning prints will be exhibited next year across the Island.
