Meet the winners of Kent Wildlife Trust’s 2019 Wilder Kent photography competition

At the end of October 2019, Kent Wildlife Trust launched its newly refreshed Wilder Kent photography competition to find Kent's Wildlife Photographer of the year and give them the chance to win a short break away in a luxury modern eco-cottage sponsored by Kent and Sussex Cottages.

The competition focused on categories that enable us to appreciate nature in all the different areas of Kent. They included Wilder Woodlands and Grasslands, Wilder Towns and Cities, Wilder Coasts and Seas, Wilder Rivers, Lakes and Wetlands, Wilder Junior and Even Wilder (professionals and seasoned winners) category.

The categories were chosen to highlight the fact that the natural world isn't just something for us to enjoy; it sustains us. Wildlife is in crisis and the decline of nature puts our very survival and prosperity under threat. Together we need to create a Wilder Kent.

After many hours studying a selection of stunning entries, the organisers are delighted to announce the winners of Kent Wildlife Trust's Wilder Kent photography competition 2019.

Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to everyone who entered. All your visions of a Wilder Kent help us to continue communicating our message.

Following the Great Storm of 1987 and the loss of thousands of trees across Kent, one consequence was the inadvertent rewilding of these woodlands with wild boar, farmed at Tenterden, which escaped the pens they were kept in when fences were flattened by falling trunks. The descendants of these animals are now spread across the area but are nonetheless wary of human contact
