Bird Photographer of the Year, the world's leading bird photography contest, is back for another year at Nature in Art.
Photographers from all over the world entered more than 20,000 images into this year's competition, each with their eyes on the £5,000 grand prize. Photographer Jack Zhi, from the USA, was declared this year's grand prize winner for his dramatic image taken in Southern California.
Photographers competed in 8 different categories in the adult competition: Best Portrait, Birds in the Environment, Bird Behaviour, Birds in Flight, Black and White, Urban Birds, Conservation (Single Image), and Comedy Bird Photo. There was also a Conservation Award, Portfolio Award, and Video Award.
Bird Photographer of the Year has conservation at its heart. This year, the competition donated £5,000 to partner charity Birds on the Brink, which provides vital funding to grass-roots bird conservation projects around the world. (www.birdsonthebrink.co.uk)
