British Wildlife Photography Awards 2023

The ‘British Wildlife Photography Awards 2023' are coming to Nature in Art
July 25th – September 3rd 2023


The British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) is a revered showcase of nature photography in Britain and a crucial reminder of what value our woodlands, wetlands and other ecosystems still hold.

Each year, the winning images embark on a journey around the UK in a touring exhibition. Nature in Art is delighted to again be one of the first venues on this popular tour.

More than 13,000 images were submitted into this year’s competition, with amateur and professional photographers competing for the £5,000 grand prize.
Photographers competed in 10 different categories in the adult competition: Animal Behaviour, Animal Portraits, Botanical Britain, Black & White, British Seasons, Coast & Marine, Habitat, Hidden Britain, Urban Wildlife, and Wild Woods. There were 3 age groups in the young competition: 11 and Under, 12-14 years, and 15-17 years.

The competition has a number of key aims:
    •    Recognise the talents of photographers practising in the UK, whilst highlighting the great wealth and diversity of Britain’s natural history.
    •    Celebrate British wildlife and wild spaces through a collection of inspirational photographs.
    •    Showcase the very best of our nature photography to a wide audience and engage all ages with evocative and powerful imagery.
    •    Encourage discovery, exploration, conservation and enjoyment of our natural heritage.
    •    Raise awareness about British biodiversity, species, and habitats.

“The talented photographers in this year’s competition have given us an exceptional window into Britain's nature,” says Will Nicholls, Director of BWPA.
