The news is - we're in the news!

The open to all competitions for members and non-members have proved to be a huge success for the Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers.

We have received lots of outstanding work from all over the globe. An additional benefit is that the newspapers have picked up the feeds and published it further. To date reports have been published by The Times, The Telegraph, Metro and the Irish Daily Mail - that's a lot of readers seeing our members work; it's all good stuff.
