David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition
The most exciting wildlife art competition in the UK, which has a prize of £10,000, is now open for entries!
The Shalford-based wildlife charity, the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, launched its 8th Wildlife Artist of the Year competition on September 1st.
This well-established competition continues to attract some of the best wildlife artists in the world both professional and amateur and gives a fantastic platform for emerging young artists with its Young & Wild category.
“The breadth and strength of the talent that emerges for Wildlife Artist of the Year never ceases to amaze me,” says charity founder, the wildlife artist and conservationist, David Shepherd CBE.
“Amazing too is the ability of my small, Surrey-based team in running such a major international event.”
Nine categories to suit all styles, a £10,000 prize purse, a week-long exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London and all profits donated to support wildlife conservation make up an irresistible palette of prizes.
Entry is open from Monday September 1st to February 13th 2015.
