In celebration of the opening of the Wildlife Photographer of the year exhibition at the Manx Museum, Manx National Heritage is pleased to announce the launch of ‘Manx Wildlife Through the Lens’ - Children’s Photography Competition.

The competition is designed exclusively for children, in three separate age categories. The first category is for children 10 years old and under, the second category for children between and including the ages of 11 – 14 and the final category for applicants between and including the ages of 15 - 17.

Photographs must be of Manx Wildlife Scene, Animal or Landscape and winners from each age category will be presented with a digital camera, together with a Family 4 site admission ticket for the Island’s heritage attractions for use during summer 2007.

Winning and commended images will be displayed in an exhibition at the House of Manannan, between Wednesday 27th December 2006 and Friday 19th January 2007. All children submitting an entry will be entitled to free admission, accompanied by a paying adult, to the House of Manannan for the duration of the exhibition.

Anthea Young, Education Services Officer for Manx National Heritage, commented:

”The competition runs parallel with the opening of the 2005 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition at the Manx Museum in Douglas, where the photographs on display within the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition are truly inspirational, and we hope that the exhibition will enthuse and inspire children to look at the Manx environment more closely”.
