The search for entries for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2005 is coming to an end on 4 April 2005.
The world's longest-running and most prestigious wildlife photographic competition is open to both amateurs and professionals of all ages and nationalities. The competition last year attracted over 18,500 entries from more than 50 countries.
All entries must be submitted by 4 April 2005 to have a chance to win a share of the £16,500 prize pool.
Doug Perrine from the USA won the overall title Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his dramatic image of bronze whalers charging a baitball, and Gabby Salazar, also from the USA, became the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2004 with her image of a green anole lizard.
The competition is organised by BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Natural History Museum.
