A few days ago I returned home to Australia from back-to-back expeditions and workshops to Svalbard and Iceland (trip reports coming soon). I was very pleasantly surprised to find on my return that one of my photographs that made the finals in the Polar Passion category of Natures Best Photography this year has subsequently been Highly Honoured and chosen for inclusion in the 2016 Natures Best Photography exhibition and book. See below for a complete list of the winners and highly honoured photographers.
The photograph was taken on my 2015 Summer Svalbard expedition (read the trip report). If you would like to travel to Svalbard and photograph Wild Polar Bears there are now only a couple of places remaining on my summer expedition next year 2017 before it will be sold out. To get an idea of what these expeditions are like be sure to watch the video Kingdom of the Ice Bear from our 2015 expedition.
The Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards staff is proud to announce the names of the photographers who will be displayed in our upcoming 2016 Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards Exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC.
