The SFS Introducing Wildlife 100 Artist of the Year 2020

 

The selection panel really wrestled to narrow down the SFS Introducing Wildlife 100 to just a dozen for this year’s shortlist. There were many pieces in contention.

Congratulations to all the short-listed artists.

The winner and runner-up of The Sketch for Survival Introducing Wildlife 100 Artist of the Year 2020 will be announced during our exhibition at gallery@oxo this November.
