BWPA 2014 Awards Ceremony
I have just got back from the awards ceremony for this years "British Wildlife Photography Awards", and am very pleased to say that I had one of my images, a tawny owl flying over some bluebells (above), commended and so appearing in the coffee table book now in its 5th collection.
Firstly thanks to all who came up to me and said hello while there, it seems the BWC is very well recognised now especially as a place for photographers to come and visit.
Secondly, if you are interested in photography and/or British wildlife, try and find time to get to the exhibition. It is currently in the Mall Galleries in London until this Saturday, the 6th of September, before touring around the country as usual... for dates of where and when it will be check out the BWPA website.
The exhibition is great, and seems to get better and better each year and with more amateurs making the grade which is fantastic. I can't think of any other competition which can show such quality and variety in our British animals, and really show our wonderful wildlife to its beautiful best! I will certainly be supporting this competition for as long as it runs.
As always, Chris Packham was on top form presenting the awards, and it was worth the trip just to hear his passion and enthusiasm for all British wildlife and photography.
