Young Bird Photographer of the Year
An important element of the Bird Photographer of the Year competition ethos is the encouragement and recognition of the younger generation of birders and photographers. The Young Bird Photographer of the Year Award is designed to meet this aim; these awards are specifically for those under 18 and from 2020 will be separated into 3 age categories with prizes for the winner of each.
Young Bird Photographer of the Year is free to enter and the next competition will open for entries on 18 August 2019. Before you get started remember to read the competition rules and our guide on preparing your images. Our FAQs section also has some useful information and answers to commonly raised questions.
