The DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022 Catalogue is a commemorative portfolio of our internationally renowned wildlife art competition. A celebration of the 151 incredibly talented artists who were selected by DSWF’s judging panel to be a part of the 2022 exhibition. The online exhibition will be live on our website from 1st September to 3rd October 2022, with each of the 185 extraordinary artworks available for purchase, in addition to a range of beautiful postcards supporting our #SketchForWildlife campaign.
DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year is a flagship event under our Art of Survival principle. The competition not only helps us celebrate the importance of global biodiversity, but also raises vital funds to keep our conservation efforts alive and operational. Art is the lifeblood of DSWF and is the foundation on which we are built. Art helps communicate our conservation message through colour, creativity and imagination.
Since the competition’s creation in 2008, Wildlife Artist of the Year has attracted over 14,900 entries, raising an incredible £1.2 million in art sales to support our conservation work across Africa and Asia. This year’s competition opened for entries in early January 2022, and we are delighted to have received over 1,600 entries from 53 countries from around the world.
By purchasing this catalogue, you will not only have a wonderful memento of this year’s exhibition, but you will also be contributing directly to our vital conservation efforts to save endangered species and end wildlife crime.
