Our photography competition aims to celebrate all that is so special about shooting and the British countryside. We’re on the hunt for images that tell shooting’s story and point to a much bigger picture – the camaraderie, the wildlife, the people, the places…

So many ingredients combine to make our country pursuits what they are. We hope that the BASC Top Shots Photography Competition, through its three categories, will showcase a few of these ingredients in all their glory.

During the shortlisting process, a select panel of judges will base their decisions on originality, creativity, the message being conveyed, and technical quality…With fantastic prizes up for grabs, what are you waiting for…? Send us your photographs today!

Competition closes 1 May 2022

The Categories

Wildlife and Conservation

We’re looking for photos that capture and convey the intrinsic link between shooting and conservation. That might be an insight into a management practice – think coppicing, predator control, muirburn, tree planting or wetland creation – or it may be an image of one of the many species that benefit from sustainable shooting. We’ll leave it to you…

Working dogs

WIN a Skinner’s Field & Trial dog food and treats bundle

Getting the right diet for dogs participating in regular exercise or undertaking moderate to hard work is key.

Through feeding a special diet all year-round, dogs can keep in peak performance condition. Skinner’s Field & Trial range has been tried, tested and trusted by generations of sportsmen, gamekeepers and gundog trainers.

Over the past 12 months, Skinner’s have widened their product offering to now include 17 dry food diets, 4 wet food diets, a range of hand-baked training treats and their innovative energy bars. All products are British made and help to sustain energetic output, while preparing and supporting the important development and recovery of muscles and cardiovascular systems.


In the field

From deer stalking to bush beating, and wildfowling to decoying pigeons, this is your chance to submit your ‘out there and doing it’ photos. Have you an image that captures excitement or anticipation, the beauty of our natural environment, friendship, the next generation…? We want to see it!

Sponsored by Albert and Maurice

WIN 4 new Albert and Maurice shirts + a £750 voucher to spend with Philip Morris & Son

The idea of Albert and Maurice came to light just over two years ago. There was no chance meeting, no lightbulb moment, just two brothers with a desire to design and manufacture a shirt that would give the wearer a look of distinctive style – something to take pride in wearing.

Since then, the Albert and Maurice brand has become the embodiment of quality English country living. Each shirt in its unique collection can be worn everywhere and anywhere. Sumptuously soft; 100 per cent cotton; classic and contemporary fit. This is a new wardrobe staple.
