Michael 'Nick' Nichols, winner of Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014, says: 'I've been doing this for 38 years. I have published many books. But this is a pretty good moment for me. This is the most spectacular award for a wildlife photographer. I was properly stoked.'
Following the most recent awards ceremony, Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 winner Tim Laman said of his achievement: 'This is something I've dreamed about for at least 20 years probably - ever since I started submitting pictures to the competition. It's an amazing honour and I'm very excited. I called my wife the first chance I had.'
