Slideshow: Finalist Preview for Bird Photographer of the Year 2022
So far, over 20,000 images have been submitted to the annual Bird Photographer of the Year (BPOTY) competition. Photographers from 115 countries have entered their best shots in hopes of winning the £5,000 cash prize.
Winning and finalist images will also be published in a 256-page book, Competition 7, currently available for pre-orders on the BPOTY website. The images will also take a world tour as part of an exhibition. BPOTY is partnered with Birds on the Brink, a charitable organization offering up grants for bird conservation efforts around the world.
This gallery is a sneak peek of what’s to come. Final winners for the competition, now in its 7th year, will be announced on September 8th.
