If you want to admire the beauty of the outdoors around the world, look no further than the winners of the Outdoor Photographer of the Year award.
The competition, now in its sixth year, aims to find the most compelling imagery in landscape, wildlife, nature, travel and adventure from around the planet.
The competition has partnered with the outdoor gear manufacturer Fjällräven, which means the overall winner – which will be announced in March – will head out on a photography assignment to cover the Fjällräven Polar dogsled expedition, a 300km journey across the Scandinavian Arctic at the beginning of April 2017.
More than 17,000 images were entered by professional and amateur photographers from over 50 countries. This March, Ammonite Press will publish Outdoor Photographer of the Year: Portfolio II, a collection of over 160 of the best photos submitted to the competition.
The photographs feature incredible sights like elephants in Kruger National Park in South Africa, sea lions of the Galapagos Islands, the frozen tundra of Norway and the awe-inspiring mountain pilgrimage of the Peruvian Ukuku people.
