Calling all budding artists, photographers or poets who want to celebrate nature and the world!

February 2, 2024

We are inviting children aged 4-16 and residing in Amersham to submit either a full-page illustration, photo or poem that celebrates nature for publication in our upcoming book, Wonders of the Wild. 

Whether it be a favourite animal, landscape, fungi—or something else—that fascinates and inspires you, we want to know about it! This is your chance to acknowledge and celebrate the wonders of nature!

100 entries will be chosen by a panel of judges including our sponsor, Barnett Waddingham, and published in the book which will be printed in full colour. All published entrants will receive a copy of the book with an overall winner selected from three age categories—4-6, 7-11 and 12-16—to win a prize! AND if you are submitting a photo or illustration, it may end up being chosen for the front cover!
