MOTHERLY LOVE IN THE JUN­GLE

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - WORLD -

A LIT­TLE bit of mon­key busi­ness could go a long way in the 2017 Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Na­ture Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year con­test.

A can­did pho­to­graph of a go­rilla fam­ily in the Congo is one of many stun­ning en­tries for this year’s award and it could be the win­ner. The third round of ed­i­tor’s picks fea­tures moun­tain goats on a rock, an At­lantic puf­fin, a lava flow in Hawaii and a close-up shot of a crocodile ... among many oth­ers bril­liant pho­tographs.

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.
