Not so long ago we shared the amazing finalists for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 and now we're sharing the British Wildlife Photography Awards, a competition that attracts entries equally as diverse and amazing from photographers here in the U.K. 

The overall winner of the competition is George Stoyle for his shot titled Hitchhikers which was taken during a project to assess the current biological status of sea caves surrounding some of the UK's remotest islands. The photo features a large alien-like jellyfish that Stoyle stumbled across by chance whilst returning from one of his dives.

The competition also had winners in fourteen other categories, most of which you can see below however you can see more winners as well as the runners up over on BWPA's website.
