The Art of Survival: BBC Wildlife Magazine Partnership Announcement

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership.

This year, we will be collaborating with BBC Wildlife Magazine as our official headline media partner for our internationally renowned art competition and exhibition, Wildlife Artist of the Year! BBC Wildlife Magazine has been a leading authority in wildlife journalism for over 50 years, producing thought-provoking and insightful features on wildlife. Like our talented Wildlife Artist of the Year entrants, they are committed to celebrating the breath-taking beauty of the natural world.

DSWF was established thanks to the incredible talent and passion of our Founder, world-renowned artist and conservationist David Shepherd CBE. David believed that he owed a lifelong debt to the wildlife that inspired him and graced his canvases. Today, 36 years after DSWF was founded, we are proud to continue his artistic legacy by working with the creative community to raise vital funds and awareness for endangered wildlife.

Wildlife Artist of the Year is our flagship ‘Art of Survival’ event, and we could not be prouder to be collaborating with such an esteemed media partner. We look forward to welcoming new artists and supporters to this year’s Wildlife Artist of the Year finalists exhibition, launching online on Tuesday 25 May 2021.
