There’s only a few weeks left to enter the Bird Photographer of Year
Hurry, the Bird Photographer of the Year Awards close for entries on 30 November 2016!
Last year saw the launch of the inaugural Bird Photographer of the Year competition, an international photography competition organised by partners the British Trust for Ornithology and Nature Photographers Ltd, and figure-headed by tv presenter and president of the BTO Chris Packham.
The organisers and judges were simply blown away by the high standard of entries last year, a standard that is showcased in the BPOTY book published by William Collins and available to buy directly from the BTO and major book sellers. The winning images are also on display at an exhibition at Kew Gardens, London until 29 January 2017.
Now in its second year, the competition closes for entries at midnight GMT on 30 November 2016. If you would like to enter the competition and stand a chance of winning £5,000 and the Bird Photographer of the Year 2017 title, then head to the competition website and enter your images. As well as the top prize, there is also £2,000 on offer for the best portfolio of six images or more, plus binoculars from Swarovski Optik, portfolio reviews and special sell’s accounts from Alamy, and specialist outdoor clothing from Country Innovation. And the winner of the Creative Imagery category will also receive a year’s free subscription to Digital Photographer Magazine!
