On World Photography Day 2021, Paradise Wildlife Park has announced the return of its photography competition.

The contest aims to showcase some of the incredible photographic talent and beautiful wildlife at the Hertfordshire zoo.

A PWP spokesperson said: "Have you taken photos whilst here at the Park within the last year of some of our amazing animals?

"If so, enter today and be in the chance of winning some fantastic prizes!"

The photo competition will be judged by wildlife photographer Roger Hooper, Paradise Wildlife Park brothers Cam, Tyler and Aaron Whitnall, the hosts of CBBC’s One Zoo Three, and Giles Clark, The Big Cat Sanctuary’s director of big cats and conservation.

The overall winner will be invited to the launch of the Sun Bear Heights, Jaguar Jungle, and Otter Rocks later this year.

They will receive an annual membership to Paradise Wildlife Park, a photographic day at the zoo's sister charity, The Big Cat Sanctuary, with head photographer Alma Leaper, and be the main feature in the White Stubb Lane zoo's 2022 calendar.

There will be a shortlist of 11 commended entrants that will also feature in PWP's 2022 calendar and receive two free tickets to Paradise.
