November 2012 photo contest: autumn woods
The sun is low in the sky and there is no better time to take advantage of this golden light – visit a forest full of wildlife waiting to be discovered. We want to see your best photographs of this beautiful season.
Behold the trees ablaze with colour, take part in a fungi foray and search among the fallen leaves or look out for small mammals as they forage for food and prepare for hibernation.
Each month the editor's favourite images are featured in the Your Photos pages of the current issue and those with the most votes may even be showcased in our two-weekly newsletter.
The winning image, chosen from the top 10 images with the most votes, will feature as the main image of the online photo contest gallery after the contest has closed.
Please do only submit images of wildlife that are appropriate to this month's theme.
The editor's choice is final and correspondence will not be entered into.
The final date for submissions is 1 December 2012.
The final date for voting is 1 January 2013.
Don't forget that although you can’t vote in the month you upload your images, you can still vote for another month’s images and encourage your friends to vote. All votes submitted by the final deadline will be counted.
