The Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year is one of the most prestigious competitions of its kind, attracting entries from professional and amateur photographers of all ages worldwide.
Whether you’re an enthusiastic amateur, emerging talent or leading professional photographer, this is your chance to star in an acclaimed exhibition for the National History Museum that tours nationally and internationally — and for your photography to receive extensive exposure online and in the media. Images entered must faithfully represent the natural world while showing technical and artistic creativity within the 18 categories. The competition will close to entries on 23 February 2012.
Paul Souders, from the United States, was the 2011 winner of the “Underwater Worlds” category with the gorgeous photo entry below. Find out how you can enter here, visit the online gallery to see all of last year’s wonderful winners and check out the FAQ section today.
