The Marwell Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is now open for 2016. Now in its seventh year the competition, aiming to recognise the best of wildlife photography, is open to professional, amateur and young photographers alike.

This year’s top prize is a 5 day Poland photography trip from wildlife holiday specialists Wildlife Worldwide and The Travelling Naturalist worth £1,000 along with an annual subscription to Digital Photographer magazine. Head to the Marwell competition page to find out more about the other prizes, which include a special day at the zoo, annual memberships and more!

The contest has four categories, which are:

  • Native wildlife – flora and fauna native or resident on the British Isles.
  • Cute and funny – Mother Nature at her cutest or most amusing.
  • Marwell Zoo residents.
  • Marwell Zoo endangered – specifically classified by IUCN as either endangered or critically endangered.

The judges will have the challenge of picking images that highlight the brightest and best of wildlife photography. This year the judges include Laura Barwick an image consultant for BBC Natural History Unit, Jason Brown a multi-international award winning wildlife photographer, Chris Breen the managing director of Wildlife Worldwide and our very own Amy Squibb the Editor In Chief of Digital Photographer Magazine.

Entry to the competition costs £10 for adults and is free for juniors, and each category will have both an adult and junior winner.
