Wildlife Photographer of the Year: People’s Choice shortlist

Posted July 9, 2014 by Kati Auld. Article from the Getaway Magazine.  

Ever wondered how and why some wildlife photographers get all the breaks? Now’s your chance to have a say.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is in its 50th year, and they’ve decided to do something new by opening up a People’s Choice category. This means that instead of doughy fellows with monocles, every citizen of the Internet gets a say. That’s the catch, though, with democracy – you only get to vote once, so make your decision very, very carefully. Here are my top 10 choices, but have a look at all 50 photos in the gallery if you want your brain to be blown with beauty.
