The third competition in our 2011 photo contest series is now open for entries. The theme is “wildlife”. We are looking for original and striking photographs of wild animals; it helps if you can capture the creature’s character or an interesting aspect of their behaviour in your shots. For some inspiration, checkout our wildlife galleries. Photographs of animals in captivity are eligible for entry but the circumstances must be disclosed in the caption. Photos of pets and domesticated animals may not be entered. The deadline for this contest is 15th October 2011.

We have some fantastic prizes on offer including the chance to win the new Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR camera (more info).
