As part of the Nature Connections Festival on 9 – 10 September 2016, The University of Derby and Seed developed a photo competition to meet TV presenter, famed naturalist and photographer, Chris Packham and win a signed copy of his book.


Entries were invited to upload photos that reflected the  different ways that they felt connected to nature. It could be walking along a beach, finding an acorn, spying a rare bird or butterfly, or simply enjoying relaxing in their garden.

There are three age categories:

There’s so many ways to feel connected to nature – we want you to get creative and share your photos with us!
