First Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 Images Revealed
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, September 1, 2020 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

Highly Commended, Underwater: The night shift by Laurent Ballesta
 

London’s Natural History Museum has revealed some of the finalists of its Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 competition. This year’s contest saw nearly 50,000 entries from both professional and amateur shooters from around the globe.

Among the “Highly Commended” photos is just a single image from the “Underwater” category: Laurent Ballesta’s wonderful capture of large topshells emerging at night to graze on algal pavements and coral rubble—with a six-foot gray reef shark cruising past in the background.

The overall winners will be announced on October 13th, at an awards ceremony conducted virtually from the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall. The exhibition of pictures at the Museum opens on the following Friday, October 16th, running till June 6th, 2021.

Don’t fret if you didn’t get the chance to enter this year: Next year’s competition is opening on October 19th.
