Better and better with each passing year!
Entries have now closed the competition.
Following the phenomenal enthusiasm expressed through the several hundred entries to the 2017 competition, the Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA) is pleased to announce the 2018 PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION. (Entries welcome from 1st May 2018).
The display of 2017 photos remains on show at Banham Zoo (Giraffe House) to our visitors delight.
Those with digital cameras and who are internet savvy can email their entries directly to ZSEA via the website and pay the competition entry fees via PayPal through our website. Photos are still welcome by post too!
We will display the photo entries on large widescreen television monitors at Banham Zoo and Africa Alive! coupled to computers. An ever changing selection of all submitted photos will be displayed as a matter of course, however visitors will be able to select the various categories and individual photos via the computer terminals.
To ensure that every photo submitted can be enjoyed by a wide audience, the photos will also be added to this website when the competition closes.
There is only one stipulation as to the subject for the photograph(s) – the picture must have been taken at Banham Zoo or at Africa Alive! There is after all a wonderful rich variety of beautiful and unusual animals to choose from!
For our 2018 Competition our categories are:
- Over 16’s
- 16’s and under
Prizes a plenty!
The WINNER in each category will receive an annual pass to Banham Zoo and Africa Alive!
The 2nd and 3rd placing in each category will each receive a family ticket to either Banham Zoo or Africa Alive!
