This highly acclaimed and exceptional exhibition brings the best of this year’s competition in a captivating celebration of British Wildlife and a showcase of the country’s leading nature photographers.

Not only does this exhibition capture nature photography at its very finest but is also a crucial reminder of the value of Britain’s precious habitats and ecosystems.

More than 13,000 images were submitted into this year’s competition, with amateur and professional photographers competing for the £5,000 grand prize.

The exhibition here in Banbury features over 80 of the shortlisted and winning submissions spanning 10 different categories from Animal Behaviour to Botanical Britain and from Wild Woods and Hidden Britain to Urban Wildlife. Plus, the winners of the three junior categories.

The winners of the national competition were announced earlier this year with the top prize going to 28-year-old Charlie Page for his image ‘A Look to the Future’ which was taken in Lee Valley, England.

The British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) is a revered showcase of nature photography in Britain and a crucial reminder of what value our woodlands, wetlands and other ecosystems still hold. “The talented photographers in this year’s competition have given us an exceptional window into Britain's nature,” says Will Nicholls, Director of BWPA. “It’s an important reminder of the wildlife and wild spaces that still remain in the UK and are in need of our care and protection.”

This year’s competition images, at times poignant and thought provoking, are a window into Britain’s nature and sure to delight and inspire.

The exhibition opens Saturday 21st Oct 2023 and runs to Sunday 14th January 2024
