This month, we have lots of competition news for you. Not only do we share some of the winning wildlife entries from Travel Photographer of the Year 2019, but we also have news of a brand new photo competition, Animography, where a percentage of the entry fees are donated to a worthy wildlife conservation cause, giving something back to the wildlife and habitats that they depend on to survive.
Still on the subject of photography competitions, Close-up Photographer of the Year is now open for entries. To see some of last year’s amazing images, and to find out more about the competition, head over to page 70 to read our interview with co-founder, Tracy Calder. We also showcase your incredible wildlife photos in our own seasonal competition, Winter Visions, where we see various species surviving, and in some cases thriving, in extreme winter weather.
Sporting the cover this month is a photo of a Black Grouper, taken in Ecuador by underwater photographer, Jamie Hall, who also shares his tips and knowledge on photographing wildlife in our oceans in our Ferus Vita article.
In his Travel Log this month, seasoned wildlife photographer, Mark Sisson, shares details of his recent trip to Uganda, where photographing both chimpanzees and gorillas proved to be challenging, yet rewarding.
