Battle is protagonist of the 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year
One of the most awaited moments in the world of photography has finally arrived. Here are the winners of the 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
“A tale of two foxes”, took by the Canadian Don Gutoski. The picture shows a Red fox dragging off something whilst walking on the snow. Looking more carefully, it is clear what it holds in its mouth: the corpse of another fox, the Arctic fox. The image is therefore the final result of the battle between two fox species that has become more and more frequent over the past few years.
With this shot and tale, Don Gutoski was awarded the most prestigious prize of the 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY). On 13 October, the Natural History Museum of London has announced the winners of the 51th edition of the WPY, the world’s most important photography competition dedicated to the world of nature. This year, more than 42,000 pictures have been submitted by photographers from 96 countries.
The Young category, dedicated to youngsters from 11 to 14 years old, awarded Ondřej Pelánek, 14, from the Czech Republic. Whilst travelling to the far north of Norway, Ondřej took advantage of the midnight sunlight typical of summer to take the picture, entitled “Ruffs on Display”, showing male ruffs will fight for females and defend their territories.
The jury were composed by 9 experts chaired by the British Lewis Blackwell that chose the winners of all categories, which include, among others, Mammals, Amphibians, Birds, Under Water, From the Sky, Urban.
