Meet Chris Packham and win a signed copy of his book


As part of our upcoming Nature Connections Festival on 9 – 10 September 2016, we’re giving you the chance to get involved and enter our Photo Competition. There will be three winners who will have the chance to meet TV presenter, famed naturalist and photographer, Chris Packham and win a signed copy of his book.

Join in and let us know all the different ways that you feel connected to nature. It could be walking along a beach, finding an acorn, spying a rare bird or butterfly, or simply enjoying relaxing in your garden!

There are three age categories:

  • Adults 16+
  • 12-15 years
  • 7-11 years

There’s so many ways to feel connected to nature – we want you to get creative and share your photos with us!

How do I enter?

PLEASE NOTE: There are two options of entry depending on your age category:

Ages 16+ only – Either enter via email or share on Instagram

Due to age restrictions on Instagram, our younger entrants must ask a parent or guardian to email their photograph entries to B.Reardon@derby.ac.uk. Entries will not be accepted via Instagram if the entrant is under 16.

Photo Competition Prizes:

First Prize for each age category: a signed copy of one of Chris Packham’s books on nature.

If you are chosen as a winner or runner up you will have the opportunity to meet Chris Packham when he will present the prizes on Friday 9th September between 7-9pm. You will have the opportunity to have your photo taken with Chris Packham at this time. If you are unable to attend the presentation with Chris Packham, we will make the necessary arrangement to post your prize to you.
