Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary’s popular photo competition for the 2017 calendar is nearing its deadline.

Following the success of last year’s calendar, the sanctuary is running the competition again and the WWS needs your help to fill its 2017 calendar with inspiring images.

The sanctuary is also calling on local firms to sponsor the wildlife calendar.

A business can choose a month in the calendar. They will then get the bottom banner section of the calendar to advertise their business along with logo, contact details and whatever else they wish to have printed.

Cost of sponsorship is £100 and in return businesses will get advertising in the popular calendar plus 10 free calendars.

The photographic entries must contain wildlife, and the subject of the photograph must be from either Yorkshire, County Durham or Redcar and Cleveland.

Winners of the competition will win a calendar and get to see their work printed. All profits raised from the sales of the calendars will go to further the sanctuary’s work.

The founder of WWS, Alexandra Farmer, said: “We loved seeing all your photos, learning all about the wildlife that is local to you and can’t wait to see this year’s snaps!

“The cost is £1 per photo entry, the proceeds of which will help to pay for the printing costs. Also please submit your name, address and daytime contact number.

“Include where the photo was taken, as well as a title for your photo (optional) as this may appear in the calendar alongside the image.
