The British Wildlife Photography Awards exhibition is making a welcome return to Stockwood Discovery Centre .

The awards celebrate both the work of amateur and professional photographers and the beauty and diversity of British wildlife.

Winning images are chosen from thousands of entries in sixteen separate categories including a special film category for Wildlife in HD Video and three junior categories to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography.

Mark Carwadine, a zoologist, writer, photographer and broadcaster said: “The British Wildlife Photography Awards has become one of the most anticipated events in the wildlife photography calendar.

“The bar in wildlife photography has already been raised to unimaginably high levels of sophistication, innovation and artistic vision, yet the standard somehow continues to get better and better.

“This latest collection of images is testament to the sheer level of interest in wildlife in Britain and, above all, the remarkable abilities of our wildlife photographers.”

The overall winning picture, On the Edge is by Barrie Williams, for his image of Gannets on a cliff edg
