The Diverse Natural World Around Us
Have you seen the 2016 National Geographic's Nature Photographer of the Year contest? The images there will amaze you! This year, photographers are challenged to capture the "diverse natural world around us".
You can send in any images you capture, but they will ultimately be divided into four categories, namely: landscape, environmental issues, action, and animal portraits. Each category will have a winner...and the prize money is a whooping $2,500! Whats more, runner ups will be awarded $750. Then there's a grand prize for the overall winner across all the categories - the lucky photographer gets to accompany National Geographic on a 10-day expedition to the Galápagos Islands...with a plus one. Sweet deal! I don't envy the judges, cause from the entries already, it's going to be a close call amongst the competing photographers. Here are my favourites:
For all of the pictures, go to the National Geographic contest page. I'm looking forward to seeing who the winners turn out to be!
