The Rutland Bird Fair takes place on 15-17 August on Rutland Water Nature Reserve, where you can see a wealth of wildlife as well as visit marquees, wildlife experts, photography lectures and take advantage of some superb deals at the show.

Amateur Photographer teamed up with Panasonic to offer five lucky readers the chance to join the AP editorial team and a Panasonic expert for a day of photographic guidance at Rutland Bird Fair – including a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000, free entry to the show, a sandwich lunch and refreshments as well as a goody bag to keep.

We asked readers to upload their best wildlife photograph to the gallery and the AP staff have now judged the 374 entries and chosen the winners.

See the five winning photographs below.
