The winners of this year’s Nature Photographer of the Year were just announced. This year, the Hungarian photographer Csaba Daróczi won the big prize for the amazing black-and-white shot of two rabbits jumping in the air.
The competition submitted over 14,000 images by photographers from 73 different countries featuring amazing landscapes and wildlife photography.
The competition is hosted by Nature Talks and since 2016 and so far summed up over11 winners. Among the categories of the contests, the most exciting are Birds, Mammals, Plants & Fungi, and Landscapes.
The winner of the top prize, Csaba Daróczi also won the Black & White category and went home with 3,000 Euro.
“This photo is proof of the fact that you don’t have to get an extremely rare or extraordinary species in front of your camera to be able to create a great nature photo,” says Keith Wilson, chair of the NPOTY jury. “If you have a vision and a creative mind you can create a great shot close to home.”
