The results of the 2010 Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year has been announced at a gala awards ceremony held at the Natural History Museum, London. It is great to see so many Wetpixel members achieving awards from such a prestigious competition. Tony Wu is the winner in the Underwater World category, with his image of four sperm whales from Dominica and Marcelo Krause’s image of a yacare caiman achieved a Highly Commended. In the One Earth category, Jordi Chias is the winner with an image of a turtle trapped in fishing net, and Brian Skerry and Thomas Haider also received Highly Commended awards for their images of shark finning.
The winning images will be on display at the Natural History Museum from 22 October. For those of us who didn’t make it this year, the 2011 competition will be open for entries from 12 January.
