This year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition was filled with incredible images from around the world, and now the public can have their say in the contest by voting in the people’s choice award.
The UK’s Natural History Museum, which runs the competition, has selected 25 images from almost 50,000 submissions from 95 countries. Now, the public can vote online for one they like best.
Animal-lovers in London can actually see the shortlisted images on display at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London, until the vote closes on 10 January 2017. The winner of the vote will then be showcased until the exhibition closes on 10 September 2017.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year was named in October, with American photographer Tim Laman taking the title for his image titled, “Entwined Lives”, which featured an endangered Bornean orangutan scaling a gigantic tree in the Indonesian rainforest.
The award is the longest-running contest of its kind, and is designed to celebrate the diversity of the natural world through photography. The winners of the full competition are on display in London, but will later embark on a UK and international tour.
The 2017 competition is now open for entries until 15 December, with more information available on the official website.
