Wildlife Artist of the Year 2019 is now OPEN for entries!

Our annual Wildlife Artist of the Year art competition was established by David Shepherd and embodies his vision for ‘The Art of Survival’ – using art for wildlife conservation.

A prestigious and renowned art competition, Wildlife Artist of the Year brings together a wide range of people from all over the globe to celebrate the worlds diverse range of beauty and wonder. Since the competition began in 2008, it has attracted more than 10,000 entries from around the world, raising more than £1.2m to fund DSWF’s vital work.

After the closing date, our acclaimed panel of judges will narrow down all submissions to a final shortlist. All shortlisted submissions will then be shown at the DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2019 exhibition which is held in a London gallery and open to the general public. All artwork will be available to purchase and winners will be announced on opening night.

Entries close at 5pm on Monday 18 February 2019
