Autumn 2021 photo competition

The EBwS Bird Photography Competition is back with a new seasonal format. Please send in your best birding photo's taken in Essex this autumn and we will choose our favourites to be voted on by you in November.

Closing date for entries is midnight on Sunday 7th November and you can enter as many photo's as you wish. They can be submitted via Twitter, Facebook or by email to: The winner will be announced LIVE on YouTube during November's 'Birds of Essex' and will receive a certificate and a framed copy of their photograph. Anyone can enter and we're looking for all types of birding photos; this could be a shot of a bird in your garden, some unusual behaviour from a common species, a photo of a rarity or a more artistic photograph. You can use a camera, digiscope or smartphone - all entries will be considered providing they're taken in Essex this autumn.

We hope you can join in and we're look forward to seeing everyone's entries.
