Capture the moment
The Brockholes photo competition runs monthly, with a changing seasonal theme (see below). It’s the perfect opportunity to test your amateur photography skills and capture #naturemoments on the reserve!
The winner – as judged by our independent panel – receives Coffee & any cake for 2 in our restaurant, as well as a free day pass.
The prize will need to be used by the end of the month after results are announced (so for January’s competition by 31 March, for February’s contest by 30 April, etc). The winner will be given full instructions on how to claim/redeem their prize in an email following the announcement of the results.
The winning photograph is also laminated and displayed in our Hide, The Look Out (based next to No 1 Pit), in the Welcome Centre and in the foyer of the Kestrel Kitchen.
