Besides the wildlife category, the WildArt Photographer of the Year contest has many more categories to choose from. There is still time to get involved if you’d like to take part in the competition, but you’ll have to hurry as their current category "MOTION" closes for entries at the end of September and October sees the last of this year’s categories, "COLOUR."

All category winners and selected images will be featured in a glorious hardback competition book due for publication in January 2022. With a foreword by Robert Irwin, the book will be a visual treat for all photography and wildlife lovers. With a limited print run of 1,000 copies, each one with its own unique serial number.
The competition is supporting 10 conservation causes–one for each of the monthly categories. For example, David Tipling chose to support the Committee Against Bird Slaughter or CABS as they are commonly known, an organization committed to fighting bird poaching in the Mediterranean region.
