British Wildlife Photography Awards 2015

16 Sep
British Wildlife Photography Awards 2015

The British Wildlife Photography Awards celebrate the best of British wildlife as captured on camera by amateur and professional photographers. With 13 categories covering everything from marine life and animal behaviour to creepy crawlies and urban fauna, the awards reveal the surprising diversity of Britain’s wildlife. The awards are entirely British, with all entries of British animals in their natural habitats.

Now in their sixth year, the British Wildlife Photography Awards were established to recognise the talents of wildlife photographers working in Britain, while at the same time highlighting the great wealth and diversity of Britain’s natural history. The winning images are being exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London from 14 September, before going on a nationwide tour. There is also a coffee table book from AA Publishing.

In this gallery, IBTimesUK presents the overall winner, some of the category winners and a few images that were highly commended by the judges. If you’d like to see more, you could visit the competition website, attend the exhibition or buy the book.

Barrie Williams, Habitat winner and overall winner of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2015, On the Edge (Northern gannet, Morus bassanus), Noss NNR, Shetland Isles, Scotland: “Visiting Noss, I was blown away by the sheer volume of gannets surrounding me. I studied the scene for a while, soaking in the seabird orchestra and thinking about how to convey this. Looking down, it appeared to me that the gannets far below looked like stars against the dark backdrop of the sea. Add to this the nests scattered across the cliffs and I knew I had found my image.”
