National-Trust ADMIN July 20, 2010
This is open-ended competition - we will pick one picture a month to use in our monthly 2010 calendars - this will give you all a chance to take pictures in different seasons.

Group Description

Each year the digital media team at the National Trust make a desktop calendar, (one for each month) which people can download from and set as their desktop background.

For 2010, we want to give you guys the chance to enter your pictures for inclusion.

We don't mind what kind of wildlife they feature, as long as you think other people will enjoy having them on their desktop for a month (and you took the picture of course)!

Upload your images here to enter. We will pick one picture a month to use in our 2010 calender ( there is not closing date at this stage).

Please note they should be pictures of wildlife and birds native to the UK.

Re resolution: I think it might be easiest to let people enter their pics at any resolution ( know that most people reduce them down for Flickr) and then once we have picked the winning 12, I will message people and ask them to send me the images in high res (prob 300dpi just to cover all screen resolutions) .

As for rights, you would retain the rights, but by entering you are agreeing to let the National Trust use the picture for the desktop calendar, which people can download. Please note, we may also be looking into running a flickr feed to our new site when it launches in 2010, so the images may appear in that feed also.

All 12 winning photos will be credited. Please note we do not make any money from the desktop calendar, we are just trying to raise awareness of the work our charity does to protect both wildlife and historic spaces and places.

Any questions feel free to drop me an email to
