Embracing the Outdoors
Here at the RSPB, we love to embrace the outdoors. Our beautiful country is an amazing place to live. The RSPB exists to help our natural places survive and thrive. Our competition is now closed, and you can see our winning imagery throughout this feature. These images and nine others, all capturing astonishing moments of beauty, will be used to create our Inspiring Nature Calendar 2025.
Judging & Prizes
Winners were chosen by a panel of judges, with final decisions made by the Product Development Manager and Product Licensing Manager for calendars.
In addition to choosing a first, second and third prize winner, who will each receive a pair of high-quality RSPB binoculars, the photographers of each of the 12 final calendar images will receive a copy of the calendar.
The calendar is a key product in our Christmas range for 2024 and will be sold in all RSPB stores, our online shop, our mail order catalogue and in selected retail stores across the UK!
It was a pleasure to judge so many fantastic images, so thank you to everyone who took the time to enter and share moments of inspiring nature with us.
