Local Zoos encourage visitors to take part in World Photography Day competition
The Zoological Society of East Anglia, the charity which runs Banham Zoo in Norfolk and Africa Alive! in Suffolk, is asking the public to support World Photography Day by submitting a favourite photo they have taken at either zoo.
World Photography Day, on Wednesday 19th August, is an annual worldwide celebration of the art, craft, science and history of photography. This free competition will run on the Banham Zoo and Africa Alive! Facebook pages, where entrants can submit their favourite photo they have taken from any visit to the Zoos. The competition will be live for the full duration of World Photography Day (19 August).
Claudia Roberts, Joint Managing Director at the Zoological Society of East Anglia said: “After such a long period of time that we were closed, it’s so lovely to hear about the adventures our guests have been getting up to when they have been revisiting our Zoos. This is a great opportunity to not only hear about their experiences but for guests to share their photos as well – we can’t wait to see all the different images!”
The photos will be judged and a winner for each Zoo will be announced shortly after World Photography Day with both winners receiving a free trip to the Zoo they entered their photo to.
Although the competition is free, entrants are encouraged to donate to the zoo’s urgent ‘Wild About Survival fundraising appeal.
The Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA), the charity which runs Banham Zoo in Norfolk and Africa Alive! in Suffolk, recently opened to members of the public with new safety measures in place.
