Sean Kerr has kindly agreed to be our official Judge again, he was also the Judge for our last WILDLIFE PHOTO COMPETITION.Our Professional Judge Seán Kerr is an award winning Scottish Landscape Photographer

"To me, the true essence of great photography is the art, and I believe it is very much an art - to visualise a shot, to compose it and execute it so that the final image not only looks pleasing to the eye, but also has real context, evokes emotion and inspires the human imagination".
