Please read all information before submitting your entry!
Why are we doing this competition? We want people to think about rhinos – because we are very concerned that they are disappearing far faster than you may think! Equally, and honestly we need funds after a very difficult year for all charities, and now is definitely not the time to give up on what we do. Finally, we expect there are some quite brilliant unseen images out there…and maybe it will inspire and encourage a trip to your nearest zoo, a look once again through those old safari snaps or perhaps you are lucky enough to drive into Kruger?
“Wild Image” – the rhino cannot be confined in any way to an enclosure or zoo. Any species of rhino photographed in any way! This category will be judged by the trustees of Rhino Revolution and guest wildlife photographer and founder of Wild Shots outreach, Mike Kendrick, who has two votes. Please submit these to firstname.lastname@example.org and pay here.
“Captive Image” – the rhino was either at a zoo facility or in some form of enclosure when photographed. This category will be judged by the trustees of RR-UK and Imelda Bell, a guest wildlife photographer and judge with the Society of Photographers in the UK, who will have two votes. Please submit these to email@example.com and pay here.
The cost of entering will be GBP£10 (or foreign currency equivalent) for your first entry, and £5 for each subsequent entry (no limit per person). If you live within SA the cost will be 100R, and 50R for each subsequent entry.
Each entry must be sent with a home address, e-mail, and where and when the image was taken.
Entry requirements: Entrants must be over the age of 16 (There will be a junior competition in the future).
