The show has grabbed headlines since opening to the public last week, winning plaudits from observers including renowned wildlife photographer and cameraman Doug Allan.

Presenting 2015 winner Marsel van Oosten with his award, at a private view, Allan said: ‘I’ve been blown away by the quality of so many of the images, and not just the winners.’

He added: ‘It really reminds me of the power of the still.’
