Published by William Collins, the first Bird Photographer of the Year competition is celebrated in a stunning 256 page book. Featuring over 230 of the best images entered into the competition, the coffee-table sized book is a lavish production that pays homage to the exceptionally high standard of entries. The book is an important element to the competition as it not only benefits conservation directly by raising funds of the BTO, but also helps celebrate and promote the works of the contributing photographers. The book is widely available from major online and high street retailers, but by purchasing directly through the BTO via their website, a higher proportion of the sales receipts will go directly to help fund their important scientific research.
As part of its commitment to the promotion of bird photography and bird photographers, BPOTY is also delighted to announce that The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew will be hosting an exhibition of the winning and selected images from the first competition. Sponsored by Gardman, the exhibition will run from 10th September 2016 to 29th January 2017, and is located adjacent to the entrance to the elevated treetop walk.
