Wildlife Photographer of the Year judge announced

Thank you to everyone who entered this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition – there are some wonderful images and we hope you enjoyed taking them as much as we are enjoying reviewing them all.

This year, we are delighted to welcome back as our judge Laura Barwick (OB 1988-1995 nee Goodchild). Laura studied Zoology and Biological Photography at university and has worked in natural history photography for over 23 years. She has twice been a judge on the International Wildlife Photographer Of The Year competition, before starting the BGS version with Mr Harford in 2005. Her current projects include the forthcoming BBC Frozen Planet 2 series, Silverback Production’s Wild Isles for 2023 and countless educational books published by DK.

Our BGS WPOTY Presentation Evening returns this year and will be held in the Sixth Form Centre JCR from 7pm on Tuesday 14 June, when we will congratulate our category winners and name the overall BGS Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022.
