The prestigious competition, run by the Virginia-based National Wildlife Federation (NWF), drew more than 29,700 entries from around the globe, with winning images for 2020 including snaps of a pair of playful baboons in Zambia, the stunning Milky Way over the Yellowstone River and a hapless gladiator tree frog being devoured by a parrot snake in Costa Rica. The National Wildlife Federation brings nature to life in the pages of our publications, inspiring people of all ages and reading levels to develop a deeper relationship with our natural world.
Rejoice in the glorious diversity of life on Earth – with the winners of the National Wildlife Photo Contest of the year 2020. Photographer Alex Rose, from Illinois, was the grand prize winner with this stunning shot of an American crocodile gulping for breath in Cuba’s Jardines de la Reina – an archipelago off its southern coast. According to NWF, this network of islands, lagoons and mangrove swamps is one of the largest protected areas in Cuba, with fish, coral and crocs thriving there. Alex, who was there as part of a shark conservation project, said: ‘These wild animals are so powerful and impressive’. All nature photographers, both amateur and professional, are now being invited to enter the 50th annual National Wildlife Photo Contest, which opens on January 13, 2021.
