WildArt Photographer of the Year Photo Contest Winners

LIGHT was the competition category theme for May and was the design of Georgina Steytler. We received 1,347 entries into this contest, which proved to be our most popular yet. We received some stunning photography and Georgina and her chosen judging panel had a really tricky time selecting the winners. Many congratulations to all featured here, especially Bernhard Schubert from Austria for his enlightening image of a Cockroach which has won our Gold Award in this category.

Bernhard books a place in our grand final at the end of the year giving him the chance to become our very first WildArt Photographer of the Year. Georgina supported the Bush Heritage Australia with LIGHT, Bush Heritage Australia is an independent not-for-profit that buys and manages land, and also partners with Aboriginal people, to conserve Australia’s magnificent landscapes and irreplaceable native species forever, for which the competition raised a total of £265.40 through a percentage of competition entry fees.

Thanks to all who entered LIGHT and helped us to raise this money for conservation. Please watch our awards presentation to see all the images and hear what our judge Georgina and the winners have to say.
