TOP TV wildlife presenter Chris Packham will be judging a photography competition aimed at capturing the New Forest’s unique wildlife and landscape.

The popular naturalist will be casting his expert eye over entries in a competition that is open to everyone.

The title of the three-month competition is “reflections of the New Forest” with a different subject for each month.

This month the theme is New Forest New Year landscapes.

In February the focus will be on lakes and rivers while March will be centred on the Forest’s famous ponies.

Entries for these two categories can have been taken during any month. There will be prizes for the best photograph in the category and then an overall winner will be chosen.

Entries must not have been placed or won any other photographic competition and must be in before the end of the relevant month. An awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 27 in the afternoon at the Master Builders House Hotel, which is sponsoring the contest. Up to three photographs can be submitted for each category.
