What to do 

Create a piece of art inspired by nature – let your imagination run WILD!  

There are 2 categories to choose from this year – REAL LIFE – entries using the more traditional approach of paints, pastels, acrylics, pens or pencil.  

And our new GO WILD category – for those of you who want to ‘go wild’ in every sense of the word. To enter this category, experiment with textiles, sculpture, recycled and eco-friendly materials, collages – anything goes! 


To Enter 

Please email a photo of your artwork to with the heading WildArt 2020 Competition. 

In the email tell us your age and category selection! REAL LIFE or GO WILD. 

If your submission makes the shortlist, we’ll be in touch with further details after the competition closes.  

WildArt is split into three age groups: under 8s, 8-12, and 13 years and over. 







The prizes! 

For each category, the winner of each age group will receive an art gift voucher worth £100. There are also RSPB runner-up prizes for each category and age group too, so plenty of chances to WIN! The winning, runner-up and highly commended artwork will be displayed at The Society of Wildlife Artists Natural Eye exhibition from 28 October to 8 November 2020. 

A special Richie Richardson award (and £100 book voucher) will be given for the most accurately drawn animal. The winning and runner-up artwork will also be printed in Wild Times, Wild Explorer or Wingbeat magazine.
