Focus for Survival

Focus for Survival is a photography initiative which aims to raise awareness about threats to wildlife and wild spaces. Each year we try and do something slightly different – in 2019 our collection comprised professional and celebrity images. In 2020, it’s over to you…

FFS Invitational – our core collection in 2019 comprised striking images kindly donated by professional and celebrity wildlife photographers, and featuring endangered wildlife or an at risk wild space. This collection included images by Will Burrard Lucas, Robin Moore, Peter Ian Chadwick, Paul Goldstein, BBC cameraman Gordon Buchanan, travel writer/presenter Simon Reeve and explorer Levison Wood, among others in. If you are a professional photographer interested in supporting in the future,  please contact sara@realworldconservation.org.uk

FFS Introducing – a photographic competition new for 2020. This year we invite YOU to help us celebrate the wonders of the natural world by sharing your images. This is a great way to show your support for conservation while also helping to raise awareness about key topics. 26 finalists will be chosen by our judging panel from all submissions received and will have the opportunity for their work to be displayed at gallery@oxo on London’s South Bank and during our awards evening at the RGS.

Focus for Survival – Life in Lockdown

Throughout the month of May, during lockdown, we ran a photographic competition celebrating Mother Nature. The finalists were decided by a public vote which ran between 1-7 June. The winner, Katie Waddington received a goodie bag and an invite to our event at the Royal Geographical Society. This competition is now closed – we received many fabulous entries, hundreds of votes and coverage in national press – thank you. To see results please click here.
