'Photograph of the Season' - Explora Club Competition

Following on from the success of our 2020 competition - 'The Greatest Adventurer' - we're now calling on our dedicated readers and all members of The Explora Club to take part in its latest incarnation - 'Photograph of the Season'.

This autumn is your chance to win a personalised tour of the Westley Richards bespoke gunmaking department followed by lunch with Trigger in our exclusive company apartment. To enter, simply send us a winning photograph taken by yourself of a great moment in the field to illustrate the theme 'Photograph of the Season'.

Whether on safari in the plains of Africa, in pursuit of quarry in the US, traipsing over a wind-swept hill in the UK, pacing through ancient woodland in Europe, or one of the many other adventurous activities spent in the world's finest outdoor locations, we would love to hear from you.

The winner will be selected by our management and photographic teams here at Westley Richards who will, along with the three runners up,  receive our Bi-Centennial book - In Pursuit of The Best Gun 1812-2012 -  signed by Trigger with a personal dedication. They will also feature on The Explora Blog, Westley Richards social channels and the company newsletter. Entries will be reviewed anonymously and judged on their originality, narrative and overall quality.

Deadline for entry of 'Photograph of the Season' is 24th October with the winner and runners up selected and notified on 2nd November. Participants need to be members of the Explora Club to win and we request all entries to be saved as a high quality jpeg (min 2mb).

You must also include your name, address and contact email, together with a brief caption and location of the photograph. Only one competition entry is permitted per person. Full terms and conditions are below.
