Wildlife Artist of the Year 2021

Referred to as ‘The Oscars of wildlife art’ the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s annual Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition is a culmination of months, sometimes years, of work from wildlife artists around the world. Alongside our judging panel we are proud and delighted to have curated a truly stunning celebration of the world’s finest wildlife art in homage to the natural world.

This year we’ve brought you an online exhibition of over 260 stunning artworks ranging between traditional wildlife portraits, colourful and playful scenes depicting the animal kingdom, dynamic and exciting wildlife interactions and stunning and serene wilderness landscapes. This year’s online catalogue is a feast for the eyes and a tonic for the soul.

The depth and breadth of work this year is exceptional and with 50% of all artwork sales going to support wildlife conservation – this is a collection like no other.

Browse our online catalogue below to explore a plethora of wonderful wildlife from the hidden depths of our planet’s oceans to the highest snow-capped mountains of faraway continents; there is something for everyone in this year’s exhibition.

If, like us, you are missing the in-person gallery experience why not head over to our 2021 virtual gallery and experience our high-tech immersive offering where you can wander around the artworks on a digital tour of the final show?
