First signs of spring

First signs of spring

Research is showing that spring is arriving earlier in the UK, so this month we want to see your best photos of the first signs of spring.

Each week, we will choose an image to feature as our #photooftheweek, and each month the BBC Wildlife team’s favourite images are featured in the Feedback pages of the current issue. The photos with the most votes may even be showcased in our e-newsletter.

The overall winning image will be chosen by the BBC Wildlife team and 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 BBC Wildlife team's choice is final and correspondence will not be entered into.

The final date for submissions is 23.59pm BST on 31 March 2017.

The final date for voting is 30 April 2017.

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.

Please read the competition Terms and Conditions carefully before entering.
