(#wanderlusttips #Nationalgeographic) National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year has revealed the most stunning entries of 2016 contest boasting from beasts caught mid-action as they gallop furiously through water to the serenity of towering mountains at dawn.
This year’s entries to the 2016 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest have captured our planet in all its mesmerising splendour from A pair of South African rhinos sip from a placid pool under a sky ablaze with stars, lightening zig-zags above night-time Manhattan as a summer storm approaches and an alligator’s yellowing eye glares straight at the camera.
Sarah Polger, senior producer for National Geographic Travel and manager of National Geographic photo contests, remarked: ‘The four categories of this year’s contest will give photographers a chance to capture the complexity and beauty found in the world around us. We anticipate compelling and revealing images.’
The competition is accepting entries until November 16 in one or all of four categories: Landscape, Environmental Issues, Action and Animal Portraits.
The grand-prize winner will receive a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos with National Geographic Expeditions and two 15-minute image portfolio reviews with National Geographic photo editors.
