The World’s Largest Photography Competition Announced 100 Finalists From Over A Million Entries And Here’s 30 Of Them

Photography has been around for nearly 200 years now and humanity’s fascination with taking pictures has only been growing over the past couple of centuries. Nowadays, it is one of the primary ways to explore and experience the world. In fact, photography is such a big deal that there are now plenty of social media websites dedicated to showing the world all of the cool stuff that we’ve shot. That is beside the multibillion dollar industry and the countless communities that revolve around photography.

EyeEm, one of such communities, are currently holding its annual photography competition—the EyeEm Awards 2019. EyeEm is a photographic community that was formed in 2010 along with the world photography competition. According to the EyeEm Team, over 5,000 photographers from around the globe participated, thus forming the community.

To show both a male’s beautiful pelage and striking blue face, Marsel had to shoot at an angle from the back. It took many days observing the group to achieve his goal.

Kevin Pogorzelski, November winner. “On safari in Kenya, we were forced to stop our jeep for this family of ostriches to cross the dirt track.

MICK RYAN, JUDGE: Funny-looking flightless birds and their offspring give us comedy and cuteness – and an immediate emotional response. A clear monthly winner by anyone’s standards – and what lovely colour. (Photo by Kevin Pogorzelski/The Guardian) Continue reading »

The Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition

Commended. Photographer Richard Peters sat in his car and from a distance watched the fox hunting, just enjoying the performance. He was in Yellowstone National Park, in Wyoming, and there was snow on the ground. The fox was listening for rodents under the snow, then leaping high to pounce down on the unsuspecting prey. It was too far away to photograph, and so when it disappeared and suddenly reappeared, on a snow bank level with the car window, Richard was taken by surprise. “It was already in pounce position, and I barely had time to lift the camera before it leapt up into the air almost clean out of my field of view. I managed to get a sequence of the leap, but I love this quirky image best, which gives a real sense of just how high these wonderful animals can jump”.
