Overall Winner

This category selects the best of the best. The judges choose just one photo from all the winners of the categories (including the Portfolio category) to take the top prize.

In 2021, our Overall Winner was Ben Hancock-Smith, with this fantastic image of a wasp spider, called 'Hidden below'. The photograph won our Small World category.
