Hello past and present MSC students.

Exposing the Wild are looking for some images that will be used for a charity. Specifically images of hedgehogs, we need a cute image to be used on a postcard. The idea is that people will send the postcard back to the charity with information of where they saw the hedgehog. They will then collate the information which will be part of the hedgehog survey that they are about to launch.

Additionally, the charity are looking for film footage of hedgehogs to use in the media as part of the survey. Being a charity there will be no payment but the image and footage will be accredited to the image maker through Exposing the Wild. It is an excellent opportunity to get your name out there if it is not already.

The image must be captioned with the Exposing the Wild captioning system. For more information on the system please see here (http://www.exposingthewild.com/captioning/system.html). If you have any questions please get in touch with Samuel Waldron or Peter Moonlight @ exposingthewild@googlemail.com.

Please send the images to the same email address as above, we will contact the person(s) who are successful. Ideally the image was needed yesterday so please hurry.

Thank you and with kind regards,

Samuel Waldron
