The overall theme for this year's competition is wildlife at the National Memorial Arboretum. This could include mammals, birds, insects, plants, fish, flowers, trees, fungi, rivers, habitats and the landscape itself.
There are four categories:
Macro Photography
We want to celebrate all things great and small at the Arboretum, so the first challenge is to get up close to nature on our site, capturing the tiny details.  
Action Photography
Nature very rarely stands still at the Arboretum, we would love you to capture its movement on site, such as a rabbit hopping, or plants swaying in the wind.
Smartphone Photography
A shot of the Arboretum’s landscape and its nature. Thinking about the composition, why not show exactly what you can capture on your phone. The more imaginative the better.
Creative Photography
It’s up to you. Your choice of what interests you about the nature at the Arboretum. You could use props, light photography, long exposures, or a simple snap shot that sum up your enjoyment of nature. It’s your choice.

You can enter each of these challenges, but can submit no more than two photographs per challenge.
