Organized and produced by the Natural History Museum in London, U.K., the 2016 competition’s 100 award-winning nature images are currently on tour internationally. Field biologist and wildlife photojournalist Tim Laman was named Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his image, Entwined Lives. After observing an endangered Bornean orangutan’s behaviour for three days in the Indonesian rainforest, Laman hid some GoPros in the canopy to capture this remote-triggered winning shot when the young male came back for more figs. The WPY 2016 exhibition can be seen in Toronto at the Royal Ontario Museum from November 12 through March 19; check the ROM website for the full schedule of WPY-related events.
The 2017 competition, WPY53, is accepting entries through December 15.
