British Wildlife Photography Awards 2015 is now open for entries
The prestigious photography competition, the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2015, is now open for entries.
This is your chance to win a prestigious award, with a cash prize of £5,000, and reach millions through national exposure. Help raise awareness about British wildlife and celebrate our natural heritage.
Winners and commended entrants will have their work showcased in a touring exhibition and stunning book, and will be invited to an exclusive Awards ceremony in London.
The competition is open until 2 May 2015. There are 16 categories including animal behaviour, urban wildlife, habitat, animal portraits, marine life, the hidden secret world that lies in the undergrowth and a special award for wildlife in HD Video (sponsored by Sky).
There are also two junior categories and a school award – to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography.
The Wildlife Trusts, which sponsor the ‘habitats’ category, are encouraging photographers to capture the magic of the UK’s habitats and the wildlife within.
Paul Wilkinson, Head of Living Landscape for The Wildlife Trusts, said: “Protecting and restoring habitats, and inspiring people to take action for wildlife, is what The Wildlife Trusts are all about so we’re delighted to be part of the British Wildlife Photography Awards, which celebrates this. The habitats category – and the competition – offers an opportunity to celebrate some of the UK’s most special places and the wide range of habitats our islands support. We hope everyone who is inspired by the nature around them will share their inspiration by entering this year’s awards.”
