Countryfile photo competition

The theme of the 2008 competition is 'Animals in Action'.

  • The overall winner of the viewer telephone vote was In-flight Meal taken by Richard Steel, an environmental consultant based in Wallasey, Wirral.
  • Knots in Flight was declared the judges' favourite. It was taken by Terry Heath from Knutsford in Cheshire.

Richard's puffin picture now takes pride of place on the front of the Countryfile Calendar for 2009. The other finalists' pictures (as shown below) are inside.

The calendar is sold in support of the BBC Children in Need appeal. If you would like to buy a copy, instructions are to the right.

  • Each calendar costs £9
  • At least £4 from each sale goes to charity
  • Last year, the 2008 calendar raised nearly £270,000 for Children in Need
