Society of Wildlife Artists


The Society of Wildlife Artists is a registered charity that aims to generate an appreciation of and delight in the natural world through all forms of fine art, based on representing the world’s wildlife.

Though exhibitions and publications, the Society aims to further an awareness of the importance of conservation in order to maintain the variety of the world’s ecosystems and its wildlife.  The Society also supports and promotes the arts-based objectives of other conservation and wildlife charities.

Through its Bursary schemes, the Society is able to help young artists keen to develop their knowledge and skills in wildlife art, offering awards of up to £750 towards travel, education or the cost of materials.

The focus of the Society’s work is the Annual Exhibition in November.  Included with the work of members from the UK, mainland Europe, North America and Russia, is the work of successful Bursary applicants, as well as a selection of work from non-members.  The Annual Exhibition of the SWLA is the foremost event in the British wildlife art calendar.
