I just received this email.

Time is running out to enter the Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Competition 2005. With only three
weeks to go photographers are encouraged to send in their entries to the
longest-running and most
prestigious wildlife photography competition in the world. Open to both
amateurs and professionals
of all ages and nationalities, the competition last year attracted over
18,500 entries from more than 50
countries, including Poland, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, Finland and
Brazil. This year a new
category, Nature in Black and White, will offer an additional challenge to
photographers. All entries must be submitted by 4 April 2005 (11 April 2005
for overseas entries) to have a chance to win a share of the 16,500 prize

For an entry form and category details, please go to:

Doug Perrine from the USA won the overall title Wildlife Photographer of the
Year 2004 for his dramatic image of bronze whalers charging a baitball, and
Gabby Salazar, also from the USA, became the Young Wildlife Photographer of
the Year 2004 with her image of a green anole lizard. Any category winner
has the chance to carry off the grand title, with categories ranging from
Animal Behaviour and Wild Places to the Underwater World and Urban and
Garden Wildlife, and three age categories for photographers 17 and under.

Winning photographers not only receive a share of the 16,500 prize fund,
they also see their images featured in a special supplement with BBC
Wildlife Magazine. The winning images - those considered the most
outstanding and memorable - together with at least 50 commended ones, will
go on display at the Natural History Museum, London, from October 2005
before touring the UK and worldwide. They will also be published in a
hardback commemorative portfolio book by the BBC.
