Finalists Unveiled For BVA’s Veterinary Photographer Of The Year 2023 Competition

5 months ago

26th April, 2023 12h04


Nine inspiring and creative photos have been chosen as finalists of this year’s BVA Veterinary Photographer of the Year competition for 2023.

Hosted by the British Veterinary Association (BVA) and sponsored by iM3 Dental, the competition showcases the day-to-day lives of vets, their colleagues, the animals they care for and wildlife they encounter. With three categories for entries –Vets at work, All creatures great and small and Happy pets that make us smile– this year’s submissions were an inspiring collection of photos featuring wildlife on the African plains, pets living their best lives on walks in the countryside and striking images of vets doing what vets do best – looking after the animals in their care.

The finalists for this year’s competition, which is now in its eighth year, are:

 Judges BVA President Malcolm Morley, vet and social media influencer Cat Henstridge and iM3 Sales Manager Sue Emmerton were all overwhelmed by the wealth of talent displayed in the submitted entries. 

On behalf of all three judges, BVA President Malcolm Morley said: “Judging this competition has been genuinely both extremely enjoyable and really difficult. The entries this year have absolutely surpassed expectations and the level of talent on display is amazing. However, the photographs we have chosen are all well worthy of being finalists. From photos that made us laugh out loud, to others that made some of us feel close to tears, they evoked a range of emotions, but we were also impressed by the quality of the images, the creativity of the photographers and the composition of the photos, as well as the stories behind the lens.

“We are looking forward to unveiling the overall winners at BVA Live and also can’t wait to find out what image is chosen as the very first People’s Choice winner! Make sure you come along to the BVA stand at BVA Live to cast your vote.”

The finalist’s photographs will be displayed at this year’s BVA Live at Birmingham’s NEC in May. The winners will be unveiled at a special prizegiving, to which each finalist has been invited to and received a complimentary ticket to attend. Winners will be eligible for £250 John Lewis vouchers.

Brand new for this year, is the ‘People’s Choice’ award, which has been created to give BVA Live delegates the chance to vote for their favourite image from the judges' shortlist. Members will be able to make their choice at BVA Live in May, with the ‘People’s Choice’ winner being announced in the weeks following the event.
