RSPCA Young Photographer Awards Shortlist - The shortlist for this year's RSPCA Young Photographer Awards have been announced.
The varied mix of images range from an oryx in the shadow of a giant sand dune to a mischievous dog covered in sand and an ant snuggled into a flower petal.
TV presenter and RSPCA Vice President Chris Packham is on the judging panel and the winners will be announced at the RSPCA’s offices in Southwater, Horsham.
Chris said: "It is always a joy to be involved in this competition and seeing both the young talent and enthusiasm for the animal kingdom shine through. One of the things I love about it most is that young people tend to use the resources on their doorstep. A lot of adults feel they have to go to Africa and photograph a leopard or something, but kids do not have these options. Most of them have no choice but to stick to their back yard and as a result we see really simple but often very beautiful pictures of garden wildlife like flies, spiders and ants."
