Join our Spring Photo Contest!

Celebrate the end of winter and beginning of a new season with us by sharing your photos of the first signs of Spring. We’re looking forward to warmer, sunshine filled days and the beautiful, vibrant colours of spring blooms – are you too? If your answer is yes, we hope you’ll participate in this fun photo contest. 

Let this contest be the reason to get you out into nature to explore and find the first signs of Spring around you. Please don’t feel like you need a fancy camera to enter. Most of us always carry our phones with us, which have great cameras nowadays.
