The prestigious British Wildlife Photography Awards announces the launch of this brand new photography competition.
Established to celebrate and recognise the talents of photographers of all nationalities practicing in the UK, while at the same time, highlight the great wealth and diversity of the natural history in the United Kingdom.
At a time when wildlife, habitat and conservation is to the fore, the awards will encourage photographers, whether professional or enthusiast, to explore Britain’s natural and urban environments, and discover its bounty of wildlife species, from birds to mammals; insects to marine life.
Debbie Chapman, Press Officer at WWF comments "By supporting the British Wildlife Photography Awards WWF aims to highlight the incredible sea life surrounding our island, which needs safeguarding for the future”.
There are seven main categories to excite the imagination, as well as two special awards to encourage participation by young people, schools and youth community groups.
With a prize fund of up £15,000 and the overall winner receiving a cash prize of £5,000, the images receiving judges’ commendations will form part of a series of nationwide exhibitions, including a premier launch and awards event. The exhibition will launch at Hoopers Gallery, London from 24th September 09 and tour several locations around the UK. The British Wildlife Photography Awards aim to set the standard for photography of UK wildlife, for many years to come.
