Published by William Collins, the 2016 and 2017 Bird Photographer of the Year competitions are each celebrated in a stunning 256 page book. Each featuring over 200 of the best images, the coffee-table sized book is a lavish production that pays homage to the exceptionally high standard of entries. The book is an important element to the competition as it not only benefits conservation directly by raising funds of the BTO, but also helps celebrate and promote the works of the contributing photographers. The book is widely available from major online and high street retailers, but by purchasing directly through the BTO via their website, a higher proportion of the sales receipts will go directly to help fund their important scientific research.
As part of its commitment to the promotion of conservation, bird photography and bird photographers, BPOTY will be further celebrated in a travelling UK exhibition featuring the winning images of 2017.
