Slideshow: Winners of the 2021 World Nature Photography Awards

Recently, winners and runners up were announced for the annual World Nature Photography Awards (WNPAs). Entries were received from 20 countries all over the globe. Amos Nachoum, from the United States, received the title of Grand Prize Winner and $1,000 in cash for his image of a leopard seal about to capture and eat a Gentoo penguin. Nachoum waited for hours on an Antarctic peninsula for a low tide to come in – when seals typically search for their prey.

2021 winners and Silver plus Bronze (2nd and 3rd place) photos for all 13 categories can be found on the WNPA site. Entries for the 2022 competition are now being accepted.
