One of the world’s most prestigious bird photography competitions has just released a stunning selection of photos for a shot at winning this year’s competition.
More than 20,000 images were entered in the Bird Photographer of the Year 2022 competition, and this selection is a taste of some of the finalists.
“Birds are an incredibly diverse group of animals and this year we’ve seen stunning images of everything from mallards to harpy eagles,” said Will Nicholls, wildlife cameraman and director at Bird Photographer of the Year. “We celebrate birds and conservation through images, and it is always a pleasure for everyone on the jury to see the work of such talented photographers.”
The final winners will be announced on September 8, 2022. After that announcement, the winning images will be shown around the world in a touring exhibition.
