British Wildlife Photography Awards 2012

Wildlife and photography seem to go hand in hand, so many people just love photographs of animals. Usually such awards are the preserve of the magnificent animals in far off places so this award is always a pleasure to consider as it is from our own doorsteps.

All the 2012 British Wildlife Photography Awards category winners and selected highly commended images are in these galleries.

The overall winning image by Dr Matt Doggett was his image entitled: “Gannet Jacuzzi”
