David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year: Highly Commended – 2021

New Forest Deer was awarded Highly Commended and I received an email from the Chief Executive Georgina Lamb saying:

Dear Cy,

I am personally getting in touch with a very small handful of artists who’s pieces were especially singled out in the judging and indeed were contenders as category winners at the very final rounds to share some positive feedback from the judges and to offer you a huge congratulations despite sadly just missing out on winning your category.

Despite this, I do hope that you have still very much enjoyed being part of the exhibition, we have certainly loved featuring your work and as mentioned, it was hugely admired and debated during the final discussions.

I wanted to share with you some specific feedback we got about your incredible piece:

Judge’s comment: ““The medium matches the subject perfectly here. The twisting interlock of branches writhes in a delightful dance of light and shade across the picture plane and for a moment the tangled depths hold us captive: the deer are momentarily still, but any moment they will turn on their dainty feet and skip away, but even then we will still enjoy exploring the intricate landscape.”

Thank you again for entering and supporting this competition.

Very best wishes and we look forward to staying in touch,

Georgina (Peanut) Lamb
Chief Executive
