The British Wildlife Photography Awards Exhibition 2017
Our latest exhibition is now open! This stunning show explores the beauty and diversity of British Wildlife. It features the winning entries to this annual competition celebrating the work of amateur and professional photographers across the UK.
Winning images have been chosen from thousands of entries in fifteen separate categories including a category for film and two junior categories to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography. Sections include Animal Portraits, Botanical Britain and Urban Wildlife.
The Overall Winning Image, ‘Heathrow Roostings’ by Daniel Trim shows a Pied Wagtail at Heathrow airport. In winter, pied wagtails roost communally in urban areas, both for protection and for the additional warmth given off by buildings and lights. This extra degree or two can make the difference in harsh weather. Here, a single individual out of hundreds is silhouetted by the lights of Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport.
Which will be your favourite image? Whether your interest is in photography or in wildlife there will be something to amaze or inspire you in this exciting exhibition. The show runs until 8 September. And look out for a special guided talk around the exhibition at 1pm on 8 August.
Also available from the Gallery Oldham shop are a range of postcards and lavish book showcasing the very best entries from the British Wildlife Photography Awards in 2017. This stunning coffee table book is a celebration of British wildlife as captured on camera by today’s best amateur and professional photographers.
