As part of our Animazing summer of fun we want to see your best pics of our animals in action! So whether it’s a leaping lemur, a galloping giraffe or a charging cheetah cub we want you to get snapping.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro photographer, an enthusiast, a complete novice or you just love taking pics on your phone.

How to enter

Simply post your best action shots of any of our 11,000 animals to one of our main social media pages – FacebookGoogle+Twitter or Instagram – and label them with the hashtags #chesterzoo and #animazing

The best will win a GoPro Hero 3 White Edition, an animal adoption package and a family ticket to the zoo. Our second favourite will get an animal adoption package and a family ticket and our third placed will win a family ticket.

A selection of our other favourites will also be selected for a special gallery on our website, social media pages and will even be shown in full glossy colour in our members’ magazine (if you don’t currently subscribe then we’ll send you a copy if your photo is chosen). That means an audience of well over ¼ million people could see your pics – a real opportunity to get your great snaps noticed and your name up in lights!

Remember, we’re only looking for action shots of the animals at Chester Zoo and the photo must have been taken this year (2014).

Last entries must be posted by Sept 7 so good luck and get snapping!

To give you some inspiration, here’s a selection of the sort of great images that we’re after…
