British Wildlife Photography Awards 2012

Now in its fourth year, the highly acclaimed British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) recognises the talents of wildlife photographers of all nationalities practising in Britain - and at the same time highlighting the great wealth and diversity of the UK’s natural environment, and why it needs to be protected.

As well as competing for a total of up to £20,000 in prizes (including a £5,000 first prize), the winners and commended entrants will have their work showcased in a national BWPA touring exhibition and stunning coffee-table book.

There are 12 separate categories, covering everything from marine life and animal behaviour to creepy crawlies and urban wildlife. WWF is again sponsoring the Coast & Marine category - won last year by overall BWPA top prize-winner Richard Shucksmith (see Richard’s photography tips below). And there are two special awards to encourage participation by young people.
