When we talk of the great wild wonders of the world, we instantly think of places like Africa, India, Australia, or even Antarctica. However, we rarely talk about the United Kingdom’s wildlife. The truth is that Britain is teeming with some wonderful flora and fauna that doesn’t get as much recognition as it should. This is why the British Wildlife Photography Awards are so important.
The organization has been a great platform to showcase Britain’s breathtaking wild beauties while also allowing some talented photographers to shine. For the last 10 years, the British Wildlife Photography Awards have been highlighting the UK's wildlife with great success. To celebrate this achievement, the competition has put together a glorious look back at some of their best works. In this exhibition, all the overall winners along with a selection of images, including category winners and highly commended images, will be shown together.
Here, we have selected some of the most stunning photographs from the competition’s traveling retrospective exhibition that will show you the best of Britain’s wildlife. Take a look.
