Do you have photographs of wildlife and landscapes taken on the Isles of Scilly? We need you!

We are always grateful for high resolution images for possible inclusion in next year’s Bird and Natural History Review, on our website and on social media.

For inclusion in the Review, photographs must have been taken on the Islands between January 1st and December 31st 2019. They need not just be of birds; we would also be interested to see your moths, butterflies, dragonflies, cetaceans, etc.

We are hugely grateful for your photographs, which make our Review one of the best in the UK. We would also be hugely grateful to feature your photographs on our website. If you are happy for this to happen, with credit, please let us know.

Guidelines for the submission of images for possible publication:

  1. Images should be 300dpi, 8 bit, RGB.
  2. Images should be left un-cropped.
  3. Images should be un-sharpened. (Most important!)
  4. Optimise the levels in Photoshop if you wish but please do not manipulate colour.
  5. Fill in your details (e.g. photographer’s name, date photo was taken and where etc) in the ‘file info’ field of Photoshop.
  6. Please do not copyright or watermark. All photographers will be fully acknowledged in print.
  7. Save files either as .TIFFs or high quality .jpegs and either:
    – Supply on DVD or pen drive to the address below
    – Request a link to my shared Dropbox folder
    – Send via WeTransfer or similar
    – Send them to me in separate emails, as long as there are only one or two images and the un-cropped files are no more than 10MB each.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer any payment for photos. However, if we publish three or more you will receive a free copy of the Review (worth £15). Two photos published would allow you to buy a copy for £5 and for one photo published it would be £10.

Please send your photos as soon as possible, before March 1st 2020. We may not be able to include any photos received after this.

We look forward to seeing your images.
