The Rutland Bird Fair is the biggest and best of its kind, featuring wildlife experts and photography lectures, all taking place between 16-18 August on Rutland Water Nature Reserve in Britain’s smallest county. You’ll see a wealth of wildlife and be able to take advantage of superb deals at the show.

Amateur Photographer and What Digital Camera teamed up with Panasonic to offer five lucky readers the chance to join their editorial team and a Panasonic expert for a day of photographic guidance at Rutland Bird Fair – including a Panasonic LUMIX FZ200, free entry to the show, lunch and refreshments, plus a memory card and goody bag to keep!

We asked you to upload your best wildlife photo to our gallery for your chance to win this fabulous competition. We can now announce the names of the five lucky winners and display their beautiful wildlife photographs.
