Young Bird Photographer of the Year 2019

Open Judging Results
Brief

This free to enter category is for photographers under 16 only. The Cameron Bespolka Young Bird Photographer of the Year Award aims to encourage and recognise the younger generation of birders and photographers, and is an important element of the competition's ethos.

There are no individual subject categories to worry about; the judges will choose the image that impresses them most. And there is nothing preventing you from entering the main Bird Photographer of the Year competition too, as this competition has no age restriction. But standard entry fees apply for all entrants to the main competition.

PRIZE£600FUND

The photographer of the winning image will receive £350, a pair of Swarovski CL Pocket 8x25 binoculars and the title of ‘Young Bird Photographer of the Year’.
