The British Wildlife Photography Awards 2014 are now open for entries.
There is a cash prize of £5000 up for grabs, and winners will have their work showcased in a touring exhibition.
The British Wildlife Photography Awards were established to recognise the talents of photographers practising in Britain, whilst at the same time highlighting the great wealth and diversity of Britain’s natural history. Now in its sixth year, this highly acclaimed and unique wildlife photography competition has captivated millions across the nation with outstanding and beautiful imagery. It is a celebration of British wildlife as well as a showcase for photographers and videographers, both amateur and professional.
There is also a brand new category this year; 'British Nature in Black and White'. This category covers all aspects of British wildlife including all animal species, all botanical subjects, underwater worlds and landscapes. In addition to still photography there is a great opportunity to capture wildlife in action and win an amazing prize.
The competition is open until 3 May 2014. For more information and to enter, take a look at the BWPA website
