BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Award 2011
Our competition for natural history artists just gets better and better. In 2010, a wonderful study of a pair of playful tigers bowled over our panel of judges with its energy and optimism, and won young Essex-based artist Natalie Mascall the prestigious title of BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010. Be inspired by last years winners and submit your work to the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Award 2011
This years prizes up for grabs inclide a trip to Sabah, Borneo, in search of Orangutans.
The overall winner will receive a holiday to Borneo organised by Wildlife Worldwide and the Sabah Tourism Board. Discover the finest wildlife the region has to offer, from orangutans to proboscis monkeys, and explore its amazing diversity of habitats. The wildlife viewing is second to-none, and combines well-laid-out trails and high canopies with comfortable accommodation to ensure that you have an unforgettable experience. Plus, you’ll learn about key conservation projects and the area’s unique cultures and traditions.
You could also see your art exhibited at Marwell International Wildlife Art Society. All of the category winners will be exhibited at the prestigious annual exhibition of the Marwell International Wildlife Art Society in August 2011, in a special display alongside 200 other artists and sculptors. The awards ceremony will take place on the opening night of the exhibition.
The overall winner will also be displayed at The Natural Eye, the 48th annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists at the Mall Galleries, London, 26 October– 6 November 2011. The winner will be able to meet fellow artists at the private view.
Have your art published in BBC Wildlife Magazine and online. All of the category winners will be published in the August 2011 issue of BBC Wildlife (on sale 7 July). The winners, runners-up and commendeds will also be published in an online gallery at www.bbcwildlifemagazine.com/competitions
