Author Information

Maggie Gowan
Maggie Gowan is the founder of the British Wildlife Photography Awards. With a past life as a photographer (she was a runner up in Travel Photographer of the Year 2005), she has travelled in many different countries. She has worked with numerous notable companies including Sothebys, Tony Stone (now Getty), Colorific Photo Agency, Network Photographers, Popperfoto (historical archive), and the National Trust. The British Wildlife Photography Awards were established in 2009 to recognise the talents of photographers practising in Britain, while at the same time highlighting the great wealth and diversity of Britain’s natural history. The driving motivation to set up the Awards evolved through the nation’s growing awareness of the local environment and the need for its protection.
