We were pleased to welcome winner of the Young Mammal Photographer of the Year (Under 15 Category) Katy Read at this year’s Spring Conference.
Katy and her father joined us for the exhibition and prizegiving on the first night of this year’s Conference at the University of Exeter.
Pictured below are Katy Read and Hilary Conlan, Editor of Mammal News and Chief Judge of this year’s competition.
Hilary said “It is particularly delightful to be able to present the prize for the under 15 winner in person. A huge congratulation to Katy. I was delighted to hear that it is Katy that is the one who has instigated family trips to birding sites and especially pleased that she takes an interest in all wildlife, even the sometimes neglected common rabbit.”
Katy won first prize in the Under 15 category of Young Mammal Photographer of the Year 2018 with her photograph Rabbit Against the Wind. Read more about this year’s MPOY competition and prizewinners here http://www.mammal.org.uk/2018/04/the-mammal-photographer-of-the-year-2018-winners-announced/.
