Details

Each year the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) holds an annual photography competition – The National Zoo Photography Awards.

Dozens of entries are submitted with shots conveying life within a BIAZA collection, work behind the scenes and wildlife in the wild in connection with the zoo or aquariums conservation work.

The competition is open to all staff and volunteers within BIAZA collections. Working with animals provides a unique opportunity to really get to know individuals and offers the chance to capture some truly amazing moments. Keepers and aquarists hold many hidden talents, often being skilled artists and photographers. This competition allows them to show off their creative flare and showcase a remarkable relationship.

This collection of images celebrates the wide array of species in BIAZA’s care and their quirky characteristics. BIAZA is a conservation, education and wildlife charity that supports its members to share expertise and best practice with the aim of continuously improving standards.

Today, modern zoological establishments are much more than visitor attractions. Over 100 zoos and aquariums proudly display the BIAZA logo and are committed to having the highest levels of animal welfare. They participate in conservation projects, their discovery and learning programmes are continuously being developed, and they actively contribute to a body of research that will, ultimately, help us to conserve species in the wild.

Admission to the gallery is free with a standard ticket to The Deep.
