Two masters of nature photography, Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols and Frans Lanting, at the WPY Media Preview.
The WPY competition attracts a very high level of coverage in the global press every year, with winning images and photographers appearing online, in print and on television and radio around the globe.
The competition message reaches almost a billion people annually.
Press exposure for winning photographers is career-changing, even for the most established photographers, as the WPY2014 grand title winner explains:
'I am 38 years doing this. I have published many books. But this is a pretty good moment for me! This is the most spectacular award for a wildlife photographer. I was properly stoked.'
