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 by wildlife artists from around the world. 

Whilst our 2022 Exhibition officially closed in early October, we are delighted to showcase to you the collection of 185  stunning artworks as selected by our expert judging panel that made up 2022’s finalists. Our overall and category winners for 2022 can also be viewed here. This incredible collection ranges from traditional wildlife portraits, colourful and playful scenes depicting the animal kingdom, dynamic and exciting wildlife interactions and stunning and serene wilderness landscapes. 

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