From bees to beavers to bats—check out some of the stunning photography that won this year’s competition.
What on Earth have you photographed? This is the question the BigPicture: Natural World Photography Competition poses photographers each year since 2014. The competition encourages photographers from around the world to submit work that both celebrates and illustrates the rich diversity of life on Earth. According to Rhonda Rubinstein, Co-Founder and Creative Director of the contest, “the competition’s success is about bringing more awareness to the photographers and the conservation stories they are showcasing.” Furthermore, through the power of imagery, they hope to inspire action to protect and conserve our planet.
