Photography competition!

Following the success of last year’s DZC photography calendar competition, we’re now on the hunt for a fabulous animal image to put on a variety of stationery items for the Safari Shop!

We’re asking zoo visitors to submit up to two portrait oriented animal photos from their visit over the last 12 months and our judges will pick their favourite to feature on a new stationery range, including a notepad, acrylic keyring, magnet, book mark and eraser, which will be on sale in time for the summer holidays.

The competition is open to all ages, but there’s not long to apply, as the closing date is Sunday, April 30.
