British Wildlife Photography Awards 2024

Wildlife photography and the summertime go together beautifully. Not only is the countryside bustling with life, but the warmer weather makes those long waits for the perfect shot much more enjoyable. To get you in the mood, here are the recently announced winners of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2024 (BWPA). These images were chosen from over 14,000 submissions from photographers of all skill levels. Ryan Stalker’s image of a drifting football acting as a transatlantic vessel for invasive goose barnacles deservedly took the £5000 top prize. In the youth categories, the RSPB Young British Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2024 award went to Max Wood for his moody image of a coot on a misty lake at sunrise. The winning images have been put together in a coffee table book, available now at the BWPA website. Feeling inspired? Entries for the 2025 contest close on 2 June 2024, giving you time to get out and capture that summer buzz of activity.
