Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015 Call for Entries…With Mobile Category WILD-I

Share

The 51st Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition launches for entries on Monday 5 January 2015 for eight weeks until 26 February 2015. 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.

WPY 2015 judge, Dr Alexander Mustard, says: ‘Like all judges I’m hoping and expecting to see amazing images, the likes of which I’ve not seen before. My best advice for impressing the panel is to make sure your basics are exemplary and then to dare to be different.’

There are 21 categories for both adults and younger photographers exploring the diversity of the world’s flora and fauna, together with the urban and wild environments that both frame the species and play host to dramatic natural events.

In addition, there are two special awards introduced for WPY 2014:  TIMElapse calls on adult entrants to submit up to three sequences each lasting between 45 to 90 seconds, which tell a story or reveal something unique from the natural world, be it behaviour or an event; and WILD-I seeks natural world stories caught on mobile devices from young citizen reporters.
