The winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 have just been unveiled! After publishing the amazing photos of the finalists a few weeks ago, I propose you to discover immediately the most beautiful animal photographs of the 2017 edition of this prestigious competition. With some impressive, beautiful or striking images, selected from 50,000 photos from 92 different countries, this photo contest not only rewards beautiful pictures, but also raises awareness about the current threats to the animal world. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is organized annually by the Natural History Museum in London, and the 100 most beautiful photographs of the competition are published in a book by Biotope.
This year, photographer Brent Stirton just won the title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017, with a shocking and revolting photo taken during an investigation on illegal trade of rhinoceros horn. I also invite you to watch the winning photos of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015 and Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016.
