David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
Wildlife Artist Of The Year


With a revised look and feel, the 2016 Wildlife Artist of the Year competition is now open for entries. There are seven new categories this year designed to inspire and to suit all artistic styles with everything from original prints and sculpture to mixed media and installations welcome.

"In all categories the judges - made up of fellow artists, conservationists and art critics - are looking not only for beautifully executed original works but also imaginative interpretation, moving away from the purely photographic to compositions with great characterization, showing imagination, originality and genuine creativity," says event organizer, Nina Neve.

As well as prizes in each category the overall winner takes home £10,000 – a prize purse sponsored by supporters of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation keen to encourage wildlife art and a wider awareness of the issues facing endangered wildlife across the world.

The shortlist of 150 entrants will be hung for sale at a week-long exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London from June 27 - July 2, 2016 providing the perfect opportunity to buy beautiful, original art that contributes to wildlife conservation. Entry is from now until 15 February 2016 and is open to anyone 17 years old and over.
