Please bring along your entries for the annual photographic competition which is free and open to all members of the Gloucestershire Branch.  (Please note that if you are a member living outside the county you are welcome to submit your photos by post but we cannot post the trophy outside the county).  Each member can enter up to four 6”x4” or 7”x5” prints taken in 2019. There will be four categories – UK Butterflies, UK Moths, Overseas Butterflies or Moths and First Time Entrants.  The overall winner will be awarded the Gloucestershire Butterfly Photographer of the Year trophy and a £10 cash prize.
