British Deer Society Photographic Competitions

Our photography competitions give everyone a chance to share their talent and showcase some of the interesting spectacles they have encountered in the deer world during the year.

They also provide an important source of images and fresh material which is in frequent demand for BDS training and educational purposes and also for the media.

Each year we run a competition for our members, and every few years we have an open competition so anyone can take part. It is a condition of entry into our competitions that the owner of the copyright of any image submitted automatically grants permission to the society to use it for subsequent educational and marketing purposes.

The BDS Photographer of the year

Each year all BDS members are invited to submit their images direct to the society for inclusion into the annual “The BDS Photographer of the Year” competition, which closes in March each year.
