Now in its 14th year, DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year, in association with BBC Wildlife, is an internationally renowned wildlife art competition and exhibition, which each year attracts entries from some of the most talented artists around the globe, who come together to celebrate the beauty of the natural world. This year saw over 1,650 entries from 900 artists, with the exhibition showcasing art from some of the biggest and newest talent in the wildlife art space.  

The DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022 online exhibition includes 184 pieces of extraordinary art, from 148 international artists, hand-selected by our expert judging panel. Each artwork showcases a variety of techniques and mediums; from recycled plastic sculptures, to intricate pencil drawings, to vast colourful oil paintings, and everything in between. With 50% of the proceeds from all artwork sales supporting DSWF and our ground-based partners, this exhibition highlights how we can use art to create something powerful and ignite the conversation about conservation.

Guests are also encouraged to participate in the BBC People’s Choice Award voting process, that will select a winner from the shortlisted pieces. The voting will conclude on Monday, 30th of September 2022. 

We hope many of you will be able to join us as we bring together our fantastic community of wildlife artists who stand against extinction.
