The British Wildlife Photography Awards were established to recognise the talents of wildlife photographers of all nationalities practising in Britain, whilst at the same time highlighting the great wealth and diversity of Britain’s natural history. The driving motivation to set up the Awards evolved through the nation’s growing awareness of the local environment and the need for its protection.
Now in its fourth year, this highly acclaimed and unique wildlife photography competition has captivated the nation with outstanding and beautiful imagery. It is a celebration of British wildlife as well as a showcase for nature photographers, both amateur and professional.
With twelve separate categories the subject matter covers everything from marine life and animal behaviour to creepy crawlies and urban wildlife. These include The Wildlife Trusts’ Living Landscape: Connectivity category.
Living Landscape: Connectivity
Many of our wildlife rich places are isolated and people are becoming more disconnected from the nature around them. Addressing these ‘connectivity’ issues is at the heart of The Wildlife Trusts recovery plan for nature, A Living Landscape. This category aims to encourage imaginative responses to capture this sense of connectivity or lack of it. Positive images illustrating how habitats, species, communities and individuals interconnect within urban and rural setting are encouraged.
