With sixteen separate categories including animal behaviour, urban wildlife, habitat, animal portraits, marine life and a special category for Wildlife in HD Video.

Be inspired and get involved this May bank holiday

To celebrate the return of this prestigious exhibition, experience something special on Monday 2 May as you get up close and personal with York Bird of Prey. See them soar across the sky and find out all about them. We'll have experienced Falconers onsite throughout the day to answer questions and introduce some of these magnificent birds. You can also enjoy a flying display during the afternoon, so don’t forget to bring your camera! (time of the flying display depends on the weather conditions.)

The British Wildlife Photography Awards exhibition will showcase over 100 images and videos of the winning and commended entries until Sunday 26 June.
