A snow-capped deer, an underwater wonderland and a frog pool party are some of the most lauded entries in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 competition.
A selection of 14 photos was released ahead of the awards ceremony for the 58th edition of the competition, developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London.
An upcoming exhibition, which will be shown at the museum prior to the tour, features 100 of the best photos, which were judged for their creativity, originality and technical excellence.
The contest attracted entries from photographers of all ages and experience from 93 countries, organizers said.
Roz Kidman Cox, chairman of the jury, said in a press release: “What has stuck with me is not just the extraordinary mix of themes in this year’s collection – a vast panorama of the natural world – but the emotional force of many of the photos. ”
Other highly praised images that were released include an encounter with a polar bear in Russia and a sobering photo of unsustainable fishing in India.
Also commenting on the press release is Doug Gurr, Director of the Museum of Natural History, who said, “These awe-inspiring images convey the human impact on the natural world in a way words cannot – from the urgency of biodiversity decline to the awe-inspiring recovery of a protected species”.
Winners will be announced on October 11.
