Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022

Referred to as ‘The Oscars of Wildlife Art’, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s annual Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition is a culmination of months of hard 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 2022 as homage to the natural world.

This year we bring you an online exhibition of 187 stunning artworks ranging from traditional wildlife portraits, colourful and playful scenes depicting the animal kingdom, dynamic and exciting wildlife interactions and stunning and serene wilderness landscapes.

The depth and breadth of work in 2022 is exceptional and with at least 50% of all profits from artwork sales going to support wildlife conservation – this is a collection like no other.

Explore a plethora of wonderful wildlife from the hidden depths of our planet’s oceans to the highest snow-capped mountains of faraway continents.
