Stunning snaps of wonderful wildlife
Gharial by Robert-Heischman - Winner of the Adult Weird and Wonderful Category
If you love animals and are nifty with a camera, then why not have a go at the ZSL Animal Photography Prize? The competition is open to anyone, whether you are a professional or an amateur, although some of the categories may require you to go further afield than your back garden. Last year's contest saw amazing photos taken from all around the world, including a well camouflaged lizard and an adorable baby gorilla. (What an excuse to take a holiday?)
Under 18s can enter for free, with the grand prize of £750. Adults can enter for £5 for the chance to win up to £2000. There are seven categories and you can submit one photo to each. The deadline is the 18th April.
The Perfect Moment
Be patient and capture a stunning shot.
Last Chance to See?
Take a photo of endangered species.
Weird & Wonderful
Bizarre looking creatures, or ones with extraordinary abilities.
From the tiniest tadpole to a ginormous giraffe. A love of animals great and small.
The Birds and the Bees
From birds in flight to love at first sight… avian images, incredible invertebrates .
Deep & Meaningful
What lies beneath the blue? Animal photos of the underwater kind.
Catch me if You Can (online exhibition only)
For those not out on safari there is an online category for people who are taking pictures on the go with their mobile phone, or searching for wildlife in the back garden.
