Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year Podcast
For many aspiring photographers, a placement in the Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, which is sponsored by the BBC and the London Museum of Natural History, is a high vindication of their artistic pursuits. In 2006 and 2007 I was fortunate enough to be listed as a semi-finalist but still haven't made onto the gallery walls. The competition is fierce and any entrants find themselves going head-to-head with the absolute best that the industry offers. However, perseverance can pay off and many photographer's (see Robert Amoruso) careers take off after a big win in the competition.
For those of you are interested in learning more about the competition and the kind of images that are being accepted, download this podcast regarding this year's competition. You can also see the winning images here.
