Isle of Wight photographer Sienna Anderson has been shortlisted in the birdlife category of The British Photography Awards 2020 – but she now needs your vote.

Sienna’s work regularly features on Island Echo, from stunning sunrises to rolling landscapes. It is her photograph of an Egret at Hersey Nature Reserve in Seaview that has scooped her a nomination in this year’s awards though. The same photograph previously won the ‘Birds in Flight’ category at the Bird Photographer of the Year awards.

In total, 320 images have been shortlisted across 16 categories. Sienna’s photograph, shot on a Nikon D750, is up against 19 others in the birdlife category.

Sienna says:

“This image took a week to capture. The Egret was in the same place every day and by persevering each day i finally managed to get this shot as the sun was low in the sky. Not technically perfect but a single shot”.

The BPA is an independent photography competition open to all British-based photographers, as well as all British photographers the world over.

To help progress Sienna to the next stage of the competition, you can vote for her photograph at Voting closes by 2nd January 2020.

Sienna will find out if she has been invited to the BPA2020 awards ceremony at The Savoy, London in early January.
