Congratulations to the Winners of our 2016 Wildlife Photo Contest!
We’re thrilled to announce the Grand Prize and Honorable Mention winners of our 2016 Wildlife Photo Contest! From the remote rain forests of Uganda and the vast savannas of the Serengeti to the icy shores of Antarctica and the rivers of Alaska’s Katmai Coast, this year’s winning photographers traveled far and wide to capture portraits of the world’s most captivating wildlife.
This year’s 2,300 submissions were truly impressive. With so many amazing entries, it was tough for our judges to narrow it down! Thanks to all who voted in the People’s Choice Awards—your 113,000 votes made the contest a huge success. We know it was a challenge to choose just one photo per day!
We have no doubt you’ll enjoy browsing through the winners below, but take some time to peruse all the other entries, too—there are hundreds of other awe-inspiring shots that will make you appreciate this wild, wonderful world we live in!
