Pho­tog­ra­pher’s en­try earns seal of ap­proval

The Weekend Post - - World -

EN­TRIES for the 2017 Na­tional Geo­graphic Na­ture Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year con­test con­tinue to flood in as the com­pe­ti­tion’s clos­ing date looms ever closer.

And, if the sub­mis­sions re- ceived so far are any­thing to go by, the judges are go­ing to have a tough time choos­ing the win­ners.

The spec­tac­u­larly can­did shots from the sec­ond round of edi­tor’s picks in­clude a sun­bathing seal, an owl as it takes off in flight, a kayaker pad­dling on a near-frozen lake, as well as wild­flow­ers and moun­tain­scapes.

The im­ages of­fer an in­sight into life in the wilder- ness, and are of­ten filled with in­cred­i­ble colour and depth.

The com­pe­ti­tion which is di­vided into four cat­e­gories (Wildlife, Land­scapes, Un­der­wa­ter and Ae­ri­als) of­fers a grand prize of US $10,000 (AU $12,750), as well as a pub­li­ca­tion in Na­tional Geo­graphic Mag­a­zine and a fea­tured post on Na­tional Geo­graphic’s In­sta­gram ac­count. The com­pe­ti­tion closes 12pm EST, Novem­ber 17.
