Evening Light By Will Nicholls

Will Nicholls, 16, from Hexham, was presented with his prize at a ceremony at the Tower of London for his image of the quizzical red squirrel animal taken in Keilder Forest, Northumberland. He also won the 16-18 category for the same snapshot of the squirrel pausing for thought as a ray of evening sunlight casts across its face.

Award-winning photographer Danny Green was one of the judges of the awards and will provide the specialist three-day wildlife photography break which makes up part of Will’s prize.

Other winners include 17-year-old Sam Rowley from Richmond, who topped the Portfolio category with a selection of images of deer – including stags locking antlers, another bellowing into the dawn mist and a mother cleaning her fawn’s ear.

Two excited Whippets skipping along a beach won 16-year-old Amy Wilton from Fareham the Pet Personalities category; a synchronised caterpillar eating team at the end of the garden meant that Georgia Hardy, 12, of Bristol, topped the 12-15 group; and a misty portrait of a Black Tailed Godwit standing one-legged on a post won 10-year-old Sophie Bramall from Stafford the under-12s category.

The awards were presented by wildlife filmmaker and TV presenter Simon King, who also helped judge the awards. He said: "The standard of the entries this year has been just incredible and it is a privilege to be involved in this competition.
