About Wildflower Landscapes

Flowers that were once widespread amongst fields, meadows and woods are now extremely rare and some have become extinct in the wild. This is largely due to disappearing habitats. Landscapes that are home to distinctive species of plants or animals are under threat. Bring this to the world's attention through your photography of plants in the landscape. The wildflowers you photograph may be in gardens - which can be fragile landscapes in their own right - or in the true 'wild'. The judges will be looking for wildflowers as part of naturalised habitats or in the wild fields and hedgerows. They can be wide shots or close-ups of individual species. Now is your chance to seek out the wild spaces on your doorstep and to celebrate them through photography.
