Since winning the competition my image - and as a result, the rest of my work - has been seen by millions of people in the world’s press, and on international television. I have been interviewed by journalists from all around the globe and my image has appeared in some of the world’s best-selling newspapers and magazines. It has been a great experience and has increased my profile as a wildlife photographer in a way that no other photography award could.”

My work has now been recognised on an international level and I have had the good fortune to be featured in the Indian national press, as well as in international newspapers and on worldwide television stations.
