About the competition

The Cannock Chase Wildlife Photography Awards were established in 2016, to showcase the nature photography talent in the region, while at the same time highlight the great wealth and diversity of Cannock Chase’s natural history. We also aim to:

  • Celebrate British wildlife, in all its beauty and diversity, through a collection of inspirational photographs.
  • Showcase the very best of our nature photography to a wide audience and engage all ages with evocative and powerful imagery.
  • Encourage discovery, exploration, conservation and enjoyment of our natural heritage.
  • Raise awareness about British biodiversity, species and habitats.

Winners and commended entrants have their work showcased in an exhibition and local & national press.
