Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2006 February 3, 2007Posted by theoxymoron in Australia, Travel.
I went to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2006 exhibition in the Australian museum. It was an international showcase for the very best photography featuring natural subjects. It is the largest and most prestigious event of its kind.
From vivid, colourful landscapes to intimate portraits of animal behaviour, the exhibition offers an extraordinary insight into the beauty, drama and diversity of the natural world.
Reading the leaflet gave me the impression that it is for professional photographers only – Funny enough when I got there it wasn’t that impressive after all since it turned out anybody could enter this competition and they were only displaying the winners of all those participance, grouped by their age.
As just mentioned above the shown images where shot by photographers of all ages, for example 12-15 or 15-17 years but for me the winner pics of the professionals were more interesting and unfortunately this was the minor part of the exhibition. The good thing was that every picture had it’s own description how and where it was shot and of course all the camera details like model and lens type.
Check out the latest information about the new competition for the year 2007 ! After seeing the skills of my competitors I will most definitely participate this year 🙂 .
