BBC Countryfile Photographic Competition 2012. This years theme is “Walk on the Wild Side”. The theme is open to individual interpretation but entries must have the countryside or the natural world at their heart. You might choose to photo British wildlife (which includes plants and animals), landscapes or even wild weather. Photos of domestic animals (ie pets), zoo animals and cultivated plants are not eligible. Images of British wildlife in captivity must be declared as such.
