Lovers of nature photography can for the first time have their say in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition.
A new publicly decided category, the People’s Choice Award, recognises the high standard of this year’s entries and the competition’s landmark fiftieth year.
The new category offers up 50 images, pre-selected by the jury from more than 41,000 entries from almost 100 countries, for a global online vote.
The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be announced at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards evening and will be a part of the 2014 collection of the world’s best images of nature.
The top five People’s Choice Award images will be displayed online, adding to the 100-strong portfolio chosen by the judges. The highly anticipated Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition goes on display at the Natural History Museum in London on 24 October before embarking on an international tour.
‘In this landmark fiftieth year we’re opening up the judging experience to the many wildlife photography fans that follow the competition so closely,’ said Tom Ang, member of the 2014 judging panel. ‘If you’ve ever puzzled over why one image wins out over another, this is your chance to have your say. But with so many outstanding shots and just one vote per person, the pressure is on to cast it wisely.’
Championing the discovery and enjoyment of the natural world through the power of photography, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most established competition of its kind.
