The Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, awarded by London’s Natural History Museum, is one of the most prestigious photo competitions in the world – this is my pick of the best shortlisted photos from their People’s Choice Awards.
From amusing to profound, the selection of photographs this year is better than ever. These 10 photos are my personal favourites: for the full list, visit the Wildlife Photographer of the Year website.
Want to show your appreciation? Click on any of the images to vote for your favourite and possibly change a photographer’s career forever. (Me? I have a personal rule that says that a photo of a walrus blowing bubbles categorically wins every competition, every time.)

The 51st Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition will be unveiled in Cape Town on 1 December 2015. The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will open at the Chavonnes Battery Museum, Clocktower, V&A Waterfront and will feature over 100 awe-inspiring images, from fascinating animal behaviour to breath-taking wild landscapes. The exhibition will be in Cape Town until 15 April and from there it will move onto Johannesburg and Durban later in 2016.
On certain Wednesday evenings (‘Wildlife Wednesdays’) from 18:00 to 20:00, the exhibition will host a wildlife photographer presenting their work, stories and photographs from the field. Entry by ticket only. Tickets available at Webtickets.co.za
