A woman has been awarded Wildlife Photographer of the Year by the Natural History Museum in London.
The image won the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year award. The battle of male bees for a mate was captured by American photographer Karin Einer from Texas.
YThe Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, which can be described as the Oscars of the wildlife industry, has been announced. This time, the award given by the Natural History Museum in London goes to a female photographer. To American photographer Karen Aigner who captured the image of bees mating.
Karen is also a former photographer for National Geographic. In its 59-year history, women have won the award only five times. So this year’s award announcement is a little sweeter. Karen Aigner named the film as ‘Big Boos’.
Anand Nambiar, who is of Indian origin, was awarded in the mammal category. The award was for capturing a herd of ibex running across a gorge in the Himalayas. The film is titled as ‘Great Cliff Chase’. The Youth Grand Title went to 16-year-old Katanyou Wuttichaitanakorn’s The Beauty of Baleen. 38,575 images were submitted from 93 countries. The final winners were announced after 100 films were selected from the final round.
