Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year 2015 – finalist

Wow, what a surprise when I open the email with the following message from the African Geographic magazine:

“I am thrilled to report that your jackal and grouse image has been selected as one of our finalist in the Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year Competition!!!

 

The image:

Almost 3 crop 1 1024 300k 72d sRGB W

 

It was amazing to be one of only 15 finalists in this prestigious photography competition – almost 10 000 entries were received for this year’s competition.

Unfortunately my image was not selected as a category winner (posted today) but nevertheless, it was a honour just get an image selected as a finalist. Here is a link to the image

And the link to the category winners – stunning photos and a worthy Wildlife/Scenic category winner by Chris Renshaw:

Can wait to see who will win the overall price – to be announced on May 29, 2015!
