The Scottish Ornithologists’ Club in Aberlady is hosting the touring exhibition of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards. The exhibition presents the winning entries from the 9th Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year competition. The competition was launched in 2010 and is open to all. It aims to provide a platform to celebrate Scotland as a destination for nature photography and to acknowledge the excellent photographic work undertaken here. All the photographs in the exhibition were taken in Scotland by professional and amateur photographers from around the world. One of the key objectives of the competition is to promote emerging talent by inviting entries from students of photography and from young photographers under 18.

Now in its 10th year, the competition represents an important accolade both for professionals in the field and for many skilled amateurs of all ages. The exhibition brings together the top 3 entries in a number of categories, including Scottish Wildlife, Scottish Landscapes, Scottish Botanicals, Natural Abstract, etc.  The overall winner of the Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year was Phil Johnston.

The SOC hope that this exhibition will encourage more people to look closely at our exceptional natural environment and to consider taking part in this competition in future.
The exhibition is open daily from 10 am to 4 pm.
