We’d like to see the best pictures of your family and friends enjoying time in the woods.

Show off the wood’s best side, and make sure you include people in the shot: climbing, running, hiding, strimming, chopping, eating, sleeping, making a fire, or just smiling. Don’t forget to say ‘trees’.

There will be a prize for the best photograph: Phil Hopkinson of Malvern Coppicing has kindly donated a place on one of his two-day coppice course in Worcestershire. There are two runners’ up prizes: a subscription to Living Woods Magazine and a Storm Kettle.

Entries close on 17 January 2017. The competition will be judged by the distinguished photographer Graham Wood, formerly of The Times.

There are some tips for winter woodland photography here.

Full terms and conditions are here.

The winning entries can be seen here.
