The Value for this term is:

Wildlife Photography Competition


This term, we would like to show off our children’s photography expertise and Badgemore’s beautiful surrounding at The River and Rowing Museum’s exciting wildlife photography competition.

We have arranged an afternoon where the children will be going out to snap pictures amongst the nature in our grounds.  In addition, you can photograph wildlife in your garden, in the playground or by the river.  Birds, bugs, worms, leaves, flowers – they can all be included.

Photographs will be sent to by Friday 12th July.  Include a title and short description. The best photographs will be on display at the Museum! Photos can be taken on a digital camera, phone or tablet and can be anything related to the theme of wildlife.

There are 3 age categories:

•  4 – 7 year olds (R, Y1, Y2)

•  8 – 11 year olds (Y3 – Y6)

•  11 – 14 year olds (Y7 – Y9)

A winner and 2 runners-up will be chosen in each category.


• Annual family pass to River & Rowing Museum

• Winners receive book vouchers for their school and a wildlife themed goodie bag.

• Runners up receive a wildlife themed goodie bag.

• Photographs will be exhibited in the Museum and featured across our social media accounts.

Competition rules
