“[WPY] has set the standard for wildlife photography - ethically as well as aesthetically… it enables people to marvel at the wonders of nature while giving international exposure to the conservation and  environmental stories that so desperately need telling” Rosamund Kidman Cox, Chair of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Jury.
