Please note this competition is now closed.
Do you fancy yourself as a budding nature writer? Do you get inspired by the great outdoors? Whether you’ve scribbled about the natural world before or not, you could find yourself on one of three amazing Earthwatch research expeditions in Kenya, South Africa or Puerto Rico.
The BBC Wildlife Nature Writer of the Year award is back for 2012, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is write up to 800 words on an experience you’ve had with nature.
You could write about a run-in with a rhino, a fondness for a forest, or the buzz you get from bees. It could be an exotic encounter, or something familiar approached in a new way - it should simply be well-observed, and unique to you.
The winning entry, selected by a panel of judges including Springwatch presenter Kate Humble, will be published in BBC Wildlife Magazine. The winner will join one of three Earthwatch expeditions:
Three runners-up, as well as the overall winner, will be published on one of the world’s most visited wildlife websites: www.discoverwildlife.com.
Entries must be original and unpublished. Details about the competition, including full terms and conditions, can be found in the March 2012 issue of BBC Wildlife magazine. The closing date for entries is 30 April 2012.
