The Countryfile Photographic Competition
The Countryfile Photographic Competition is now open for entries! The theme this year is “Our Living Landscape”. We want pictures that capture the beauty of the British countryside and all the wonderful life within it.
From all your entries, the best twelve photographs will make up the Countryfile Calendar for 2014. We’ll also have an overall winner who can choose from a range of the latest photography equipment to the value of £1000. The person who takes the judges’ favourite photo will get to choose equipment to the value of £500.
The Countryfile photo competition isn’t open to professionals and because we want something original your entries must not have won other competitions. You can send in up to four photos, which must be taken in the UK. Whatever you decide to photograph, please do it responsibly. Take care not to disturb any animals or damage the environment. And always follow the countryside code.
How to enter: Please write your name, address and a daytime and evening phone number on the back of each photo you want to enter with a note of where it was taken. Then send your entries to…

Meanwhile, on Adam’s farm, it’s time to reveal the name of Eric the Bull’s unusual calf.
Sunday 16th June
Ellie Harrison and Matt Baker are in North Wales. Ellie discovers a strange and wonderful coastal habitat. Matt heads to Rhyl for the annual Woodfest - a celebration of woodworking, forestry and chainsaw carving. Tom Heap is in Norfolk reporting on the deadly disease that is ravaging our native ash trees. Meanwhile, someone has been a naughty boy down on Adam’s farm!
Help our wild flowers
Tom Heap has been investigating the dramatic loss of millions of acres of British wild flowers. If you would like to find out more then the charity Plantlife has lots of useful information about our endangered plant species and the things that can be done to both conserve and restore them.
This summer, the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew is launching its own campaign to promote the importance of bringing back our wild flowers. It wants people across the country to get involved and to nominate spaces they would like to see transformed.
