About the competition
Fiona Matthews, chair of The Mammal Society and part of the judging team, said “It is fantastic to see such a diversity of entries this year. These images show that you don’t have to be on safari in Africa to see amazing wildlife. From remote corners of Scotland to the middle of cities, wild animals are all around us if we just stop to look."
All the winning and shortlisted images were featured in an exhibition at the Mammal Society Spring Conference at Robinson College Cambridge in March 2017, followed by the prize giving and a free talk from Simon King.
