In these uncertain and challenging times David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is delighted to announce that entries are now open for their global DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2021 competition and exhibition.
DSWF has reacted to the global pandemic and is evolving to end extinction by creating an interactive, pioneering, and far-reaching virtual Wildlife Artist of the Year 2021 exhibition featuring all shortlisted artworks using the latest technology. The new virtual platform will allow for greater interaction allowing visitors explore the 2021 exhibition in a truly interactive and unique way.
Wildlife artists are invited to pick up their brushes, easels and pencils to help create the most viewed and significant Wildlife Artist of the Year to date, for the sake of the world’s precious wildlife and the future of this much-celebrated competition.
Shortlisted artworks for the exhibition will be selected by an expert judging panel, which includes DSWF’s very first Art Patron and world-renowned wildlife artist, Emily Lamb.
Winning artists will receive generous cash prizes donated by dedicated sponsors, the most recent of which is the Elizabeth Hosking Prize for Watercolour.
This world class competition exemplifies David Shepherd’s legacy, creating awareness for biodiversity from across the globe in its seven unique categories:
- Animal Behaviour
- Earth’s Wild Beauty
- Facing Extinction
- Human Impact
