All the adult and junior finalist’s artwork will be exhibited this autumn alongside those donated by leading wildlife artists and celebrity
supporters, including charity patron Sir Ranulph Fiennes, before being sold via online auction with all proceeds supporting the charity’s projects. These range from protecting critically endangered forest elephants in the Congo Basin, to study on the impact of Climate Change on snow leopards in the Himalayas.
The exhibition can be seen at The OXO Gallery in London, The Crypt Gallery in Norwich, Edinburgh and a digital exhibition in New York. Vicky said, “I feel privileged to be shortlisted again this year, the level of work in the final 100 is exceptional. I hope that the exhibition achieves its aim of visually celebrating biodiversity and increasing awareness about the threats it faces whilst raising much needed funds for conservation projects around the globe”.
The charity is due to announce a short-list next week for the Sketch for Survival awards. The public can vote for their favourite artwork in the collection when the People’s Choice voting opens on 22nd September.
