Colour in Nature: Photography Competition for Henley Children

Help us celebrate our natural world!

Time outdoors might be limited at the moment but it is still possible to notice and enjoy nature.  Enter our exciting wildlife photography competition for children to record the wonderful wildlife on our doorstep.

Get snapping!  You can photograph nature in your garden, from your window or from wherever you are.  Birds, bugs, the sky, leaves, flowers – they can all be included.  We are looking for photographs that capture the splendid colours in nature.

Send your photograph and entry form to us at by 5pm on Friday 10 July and you could be a winner!

The best photographs will be on display at the Museum!

Photos can be taken on a digital camera, phone or tablet and can be anything related to the theme of colour in nature.
