Oh yes, you are right, It is BWPA time once again. It suggests that this is really an ideal time to excuse yourself from your busy work schedule and go out with with your camera to hold some magnificent moments of the natural world in the United Kingdom – starting from fields to forests to skies and seas.
British Wildlife Photography Awards of this year started on 1st February, and this is not just a scope to win a prestigious photography title, but also a 1st prize of £ 5000 cash as well as among other prizes on offer. Commended entrants and winners will also have their pictures showcased in a touring exhibit and later in the year a stunning book will also be released.
The BWPA event is open to all shoutterbugs practising in the United Kingdom, professional or amateur. This year there are twelve categories, including two new: one is ‘Botanical Britain’ that specifically focusing on algae, trees, plants, fungi and flowers; and the other one is ‘Natural Details’ that is all about feting nature’s beauty up close.
Specific awards will also be given to young photographers, and again there is a video section too. And the WWF is also happy to be one of the sponsors of the British Wildlife Photography Awards again this year.
Full details about all categories, how to enter, the prizes, be found on the British Wildlife Photography Awards website. 4th May is the closing date for entries.
