Category: Animal (WINNER)

Gentoo Penguins photographed at Falkland Islands.
“I dug a small hole in the sand so as to not startle the penguins on their route back to their nest. I laid in wait for hours before these curious chaps came over to see who I was — I couldn’t help but think they were posing for me.”
Photographer: Barry Robertson

A train meanders through serpentine paths in the Sri Lankan midlands.
“Overcrowded trains often leave local travellers with no other choice than standing in the open door or even hanging outside. I quickly discovered this is a photographer’s dream.”
Photographer: Yanick Targonski

Category: River (WINNER)

The thawing River Rio de las Vueltas in Patagonia, Argentina, with Fitz Roy mountain in the distance.
“I travelled to Río de las Vueltas, near El Chaltén, Santa Cruz Province in August, which is winter in the region, and expected challenging snow and ice. However, for much of the two weeks, the sun shone, giving outstanding views of the Cerro Torre and Cerro Fitz Roy mountains.”
Photographer: Claire Carter

Category: People (WINNER)

A traditional New Year ritual dance in Comanesti, Romania in which participants dress up as bears.
“Accompanied by their gypsy trainer and a youth beating a tambourine-type instrument, the animals crawl through the crowd in this symbolic ritual. The bears perform a dance until they fall dead on the ground. After their hearts are taken by the trainer, the bears return to life, but theoretically, a gentler one. This ancient rite suggests man’s power to tame nature.”
Photographer: Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi

Category: Urban (WINNER)

St Paul’s Cathedral framed by silver birches on the South Bank in London.
“I wanted to show the interaction and beauty of urban trees in our built environment. The photo has many temporal relationships: people in coats frozen in the scene, and the leaves of late Autumn; as well as the whiteness of the silver birches and the stone of St Paul’s.”
Photographer: Philip Braude

Adventure seekers climb up a doline (sinkhole) deep inside Son Doong, Vietnam, the world’s biggest cave.
“Two-way radios and a laser pointer were used to get people in position for this photo, and ensure their headlamps provided just the right amount of illumination.”
Photographer: Chris Miller
