Capture spring wildlife this Easter weekend
Looking for another reason to get out and about in the great outdoors this Easter weekend? The annual British Wildlife Photography Awards close in just over a month, making this the ideal time to capture wildlife emerging from winter. With twelve separate categories, you can submit photos of everything from marine life and animal behaviour to creepy crawlies and urban wildlife – with an overall prize fund worth £20,000 up for grabs.
Among the categories are a special new award for video showing wildlife in stunning High Definition, plus a new ‘Wild Woods’ category to celebrate our ongoing love affair with forests and show the public how beautiful these spaces can be. The Young People’s Award is free to enter, further encouraging youngsters to get outside and explore the wild world around them. On offer is a range of prizes and a cash award of £5,000 for the overall winner, and images receiving judges’ commendations will form part of a series of nationwide exhibitions. Winners and commended entries will also be featured in the coffee table book British Wildlife Photography Awards Collection 3, published by AA Publishing.
