Nicholas, now 14, finally did it - he won his first major international wildlife photography competition, the Animal Photography Competition held yearly by the London Zoological Society (ZSL). He had entered two other, similar competitions last year and was short-listed with several images in both (one of which, of a bird :cry:, even got published in a book about the competition), but this is the first time he actually won a prize (250 British Pounds).

Specifically, he competed in the junior division (up to age 18) taking top prize in the category "At Home in Their Habitat" and qualifying as runner-up (second place) in the category "Weird and Wonderful." Three other images he entered were short-listed, as well. Here are the winning images

Here's the website for the ZSL competition, for those who are interested.

Unfortunately, the website shows only 7 of the 28 winning images - and none of Nicholas's - which is a bit disappointing. But, hey, it is what is. At least the images that are shown will give you an idea of the level of competition. They do include both images of adult winners and some of the other junior winners. You'll be pleased to see that the overall winning image is - of a HERP.

Enjoy!

Robert

Congratulations to Nicholas! Great images, and i'm sure there will be many more prizes to come as he clearly has a very good eye.

Congrats to your son. Those are definitely some praise-worthy (and prize-worthy) images.
