The launch of this year’s British Wildlife Photography Awards gives you the opportunity to highlight the wealth and diversity of British wildlife, with the best of the finalists joining a touring exhibition and appearing in a stunning book. Finalists will be invited to an exclusive awards ceremony in London and there is an overall prize fund of up to £20,000.

“Each year the British Wildlife Photography Awards generates an incredible catalogue of splendid, exciting, imaginative and artistic images, proving beyond doubt that we have the richest palette of life to celebrate in our own back yard,” says Chris Packham. “Anyone passionate about protecting and preserving wildlife will be inspired by the British Wildlife Photography Awards, which has done more than any other competition to raise the profile of British wildlife.”

There are 16 categories open to anyone around the world including Animal Behaviour, Urban Wildlife, Habitat and Animal Portraits, as well as junior and school awards.
