It’s that time of the year again, when the committee reviews the achievements of our members during the past year and announces our 2019 award winners.

On behalf of the BirdLife Photography committee it gives me great pleasure to firstly announce our most prestigious award, the BirdLife Photography Annual Award.

This award is at the discretion of the committee and is presented to a BLP member who has excelled in the following three criteria:

  • at least 24 high quality images submitted to the image galleries through the website during the calendar year,
  • participates in at least 50% of the Current Competitions organised during the calendar year,
  • actively contributes to at least one of a range of BirdLife Photography activities, events, project or resources that benefit our members (as determined by the Committee).

The 2019 BirdLife Photography Annual Award is presented to Con Boekel.

Con contributed 120 images (including several to the Science & Conservation gallery), entered all 4 competitions, and contributed to BLP as an image moderator and Mystery Reviewer; Con won the 2019 Tom Oliver Award with his photo essay “Bird photography for What?

The award consists of a quality sliced crystal cylinder with a frosted white-on-crystal BLP logo and laser inscription, in a velvet presentation case.
