AN ANDOVER photographer has won a national photography competition and will see his work featured in an upcoming calendar.

Daniel Lowth recently won a national wild bird photography competition organised by homes and garden retailer, wilko.

He entered a picture of a bearded tit and judges were so impressed that the Andover man was awarded a £100 wilko voucher, as well as being selected as one of a dozen winners to be featured in the official 2021 calendar.

Daniel said: “I was delighted to discover that I had won the wilko Wild Bird photography competition and that my photo would be used in the 2021 calendar.”

Daniel Bingham, Senior Pets Buyer at wilko said: “With the UK spending more time in their gardens throughout lockdown, we saw a big increase in the number of entries and quality of the photos of wild birds submitted to the competition this year.

“We can’t wait to see the final printed calendar in stores with the vast array of wild bird photography. It was a tough decision as there could only ever be 12 winners, but we were extremely impressed by Daniel’s photo.”

The 2021 calendar will be on sale in store and available online at in late 2020.
