We are sure that many Cardinal readers will have been taking great photographs during the COVID-19 quarantine and pandemic period. Nature London has decided to hold a fourth photo competition. This contest will have the theme “Landscapes that tell a story”. This means that the photograph should be more that a pretty piece of scenery. It should capture a moment that expresses a mood, asks a question or visually records an event, issue or idea through nature’s landscape. Nature London members are invited to submit their best images which illustrate some striking aspect of our natural world which meets such criteria. No prizes, only honour and good fun – and the opportunity to test your photographic skills – are the elements. A committee will select the best images for colour reproduction in the Spring 2022 issue of The Cardinal. Here are the rules:

  • Images must be photographs taken in Canada, taken by a member of Nature London.
  • Images should be submitted as JPEGs. The image resolution should be sufficient to allow for good reproduction in print.
  • The deadline for entries is 31 January, 2022. This will allow time for creating new images in all seasons.
  • Members may submit at most three images.
  • Judging will be based on the image as submitted. The editors may then crop or adjust as needed for optimal reproduction if necessary.
  • Only one image per member will be placed in the winning categories.
  • Images should be sent as attachments e-mailed to
  • Each e-mail should have one image attached, and should include:
    • The photographers name
    • Image description, including a short caption or title
    • When and where the photo was taken
    • Photo data – camera type, exposure, etc. if available.
  • Images will be added to the NL photo database and may be used for Nature London purposes (Cardinal, website, etc.) with full credit of the photographer. (Submission of additional images for this purpose is welcome at any time – but only three entries to be judged in the contest please).
