Wildlife Photographer of the Year uses photography to challenge perceptions about the natural world, helping to promote sustainability and the conservation of wildlife.
We celebrate biodiversity, evolution and the origins of life, and aim to inspire a greater understanding of nature.
We champion ethical wildlife photography. This means we advocate faithful representations of the natural world that are free from excessive digital manipulation, accompanied by honest captions and that display total respect for animals and their environments.
Images can range from animal portraiture, action or behaviour, as well as the wider habitats of wildlife, to artistic interpretations of the natural world. They will be judged on their quality, style and originality.
