The theme for our third competition for 2020 is Head and Bill.  The focus is on the head and bill but an appropriate amount of neck and upper body (minimum please) as a base for the head and bill is acceptable.  The challenge is to obtain sharpness and clarity with the identifiable features of the head and bill including those features that identify the species. Please remember that all competition entries must have relevant comments, including why you have chosen the image for the competition (there is a link to further guidance on the Submit Photos page).

This competition is open for submission of entries until Monday 10th August 2020.  Images must have been taken during the last four years (that is, on or after 15th June 2016). Up to four of your best images may be submitted. Images submitted to previous competitions, or to the New Images gallery, may be submitted to this competition; if you choose to do this, you must resubmit the image to the competition gallery; images cannot be moved from an existing gallery. There are now maximum and minimum size requirements for all levels of competition. Images may be up to 1800 pixels wide and/or high, and must have at least one dimension meeting the minimum size requirement for the competition level; for the Advanced competition, the minimum size is 1800 pixels, for the Intermediate and Entry Level competitions the minimum size is 1400 pixels.
