European Wildlife Photographer of the Year has announced its winners for this year, presented by The German Society for Nature Photography (GDT). The competition showcases the most awe-inspiring captures from Europe’s best wildlife photographers. Photographers from over 30 countries entered around 15,800 images to compete for a number of different categories. Judged by a panel of expert wildlife photographers, the jury selected 85 of the best images, before narrowing it down to the ultimate winners.

Overall winner: The Ghost – Eduardo Blanco Mendizabal (Spain). “Early this year I visited the nature park of Sierra de Andújar in Andalusia to look for the most endangered species of wild cats in Europe, the Iberian lynx ( Lynx pardinus). One evening I discovered a lynx right beside the road. The animal hardly took any notice but proceeded to groom itself quietly. Even the headlights of my car did not bother it. I took many photographs, but only in this one shot the lynx’s eyes light up ghostlike”. (Photo by Eduardo Blanco Mendizabal/2019 GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year) Continue reading »
