The British Wildlife Photography Awards, an exhibition celebrating the beauty and diversity of British wildlife, is coming to Callendar House in Falkirk from 9th October 2021 to 16th January 2022. A perfect activity during the October school holidays, be inspired by nature at its most glorious.
The British Wildlife Photography Awards is an annual photographic competition, showcasing the work of both amateur and professional photographers across the country. The result is a unique legacy capturing British wildlife at its best.
The winning images were chosen from thousands of entries in 15 separate categories – including two junior categories to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography.
Lesley O’Hare, Culture and Libraries Manager at Falkirk Community Trust, said: “We are delighted to be hosting this celebration of British wildlife. Our own Callendar Park is a rich habitat for many birds, mammals, insects, and fish. The winning images are truly extraordinary, especially those captured by younger people. We also hope that the British Wildlife Photography Awards exhibition will raise awareness of the upcoming COP 26 Climate conference in Glasgow and the need to protect our wildlife at a time when one in four of our native mammals is threatened with extinction, and many others are in decline.”
Once you have had a look round the exhibition, take a stroll around the beautiful parkland to see what wildlife you can spot.
The exhibition, which is free to enjoy, will be on show in both galleries in Callendar House in Falkirk. It runs from Saturday 9th October to Sunday 16th January 2022. Callendar House is open 10am – 5pm every day excluding Tuesdays.
