Critiquing the many tens of thousands of submissions to find the winning 101 will be an international jury of experts including National Geographic Senior Editor Kathy Moran, master of nature photographer, Tom Mangelsen, French aerial photographer, Thierry Vezon, and underwater photographer, Dr Alex Mustard.
Sir David Attenborough, who has presented the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards on many occasions, says: ‘Great pictures of nature have one thing in common – they are unforgettable. They can also be a profound source of beauty, wonder and joy.’
Truly great images of nature can transform the way people look at the natural world, challenge opinion and stimulate debate. Whether shot in the remote wilderness, a bustling metropolis, or a back garden, wildlife photography has the power to inspire, excite and amaze.
