The competition is now open and closes 31st January 2021.
The competition is open to photographers from all countries.
The Competition is comprised of both an adult competition (the ‘Adult Competition’), and a youth competition (the ‘Youth Competition’).
- The Adult Competition is open to individuals that are aged 16 years or above on the 31st January 2021.
- The Youth Competition is open to individuals that are aged 15 years or below on the 31st January 2021.
There is no limit on the number of entries you may submit to the Adult Competition. Entrants into the Youth Competition are limited to 10 entries.
- Wild Portraits
Focused on beautiful portraits of wildlife, this category is usually more “traditional.” Favoured by photographers who want to showcase an animal with a straight-forward portrait.
- Animal Behaviour
Photos that capture animal behaviour in the wild. This could be interactions between multiple individuals, or one going about its day and interacting with its environment.
- Urban Wildlife
An increasingly popular category of wildlife photography. This category focuses on urban wildlife photography and the increasingly urban world that we live in.
Images should have an element of urban life alongside a wildlife subject. That could be a fox in a city setting, birds nesting on a wall, or something else.
This category focuses on the underwater world. This could be marine animals, as well as landscapes and macro beneath the waves.
- Small World
Macro and close-up photos can be entered here. This is both “traditional” macro photography as well as images of smaller critters in general.
Photos that show off the beauty of our natural world through landscapes.
- The Night Sky
Stars, celestial phenomenon, and more. Anything space-related that focuses on the night sky should be entered into this category.
- Camera Traps
Camera traps are capable of capturing some incredible images. This category focuses on just that. Any type of camera trap is suitable for this category, from “off the shelf” Bushnells through to more advanced DSLR setups.
- Youth Award
Open to those aged below 16 years old on the 31st January 2021, the winner will be crowned the Young Nature TTL Photographer of the Year 2021.
- Overall Winner – £1,500
This is the title that everybody wants.
Not only will you be crowned the Nature TTL Photographer of the Year 2021, but our Overall Winner will take home £1,250 in cash (+ another £250 for the category win).
