Competition entries were emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 16th August 2012 - NOW CLOSED
Entries were posted online here at bsbicymru.blogspot.co.uk so that you could view them and vote for your favourite by 7th September 2012.
The winning photograph was selected by a team of judges from the Welsh Committee and Publicity Working Group of the BSBI.
The cards have now been printed so get your orders in! You can order online and pay using PayPal on the BSBI's main Wales page.
The cards are printed as folded cards (A6 size; approx 4" x 6" with a silk finish) with a photograph on the front. There is a bilingual greetings message (Cyfarchion gorau tros y Nadolig a'r Flwyddyn Newydd/ Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year). You can also buy blank greetings cards for use on any occasion. On the back is the BSBI logo and photo details (species, site, photographer). The cards come with white envelopes.
The cards are priced at
5 for £3.00
10 for £5.00
20 for £8.00
This includes postage to any UK address - overseas orders would be charged extra.
Now that the judging has been completed the winner has been selected as David Hill - photographer of entry no. 22.

Three more entries today 9th July. There is no fixed policy on native vs non-native species; but the criteria for the winner must include how well it is likely to sell (at Christmas time?) to a BSBI members market! I'd welcome other peoples' thoughts on this...
