Little Paws Photography Competition

Calling all young photographers! Yorkshire Wildlife Park have launched a unique competition for young photographers; from five up to sixteen years of age. This photographic competition aims to inspire kids to learn about wildlife photography and capture fantastic pictures of the incredible animals at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

We hope to give budding young photographers a great opportunity to showcase their work and win some fantastic prizes. One winning photographer from each category will be presented with a YWP Animal Adoption pack and their photo will be showcased online. Wether its a picture of a Polar Bear or a Snap of a Squirrel Monkey, get submitting those shots today!
