Our beautiful natural world is increasingly facing many threats, many of them man-made, such as the global pollution of the planet with plastics, or caused by conflicts between expanding human settlements and the natural habit and environments for non-human life.

This category is about the endangered world we inhabit, the threats its landscapes and wildlife face and the measures being taken to conserve, restore or protect them.

In a portfolio of four images (colour or black & white) we would like you to show us part of that endangered world, whether it’s environment, landscapes, seascapes, conservation, migration routes, wildlife, sea life, plant life, trees, insects, mammals, birds, fish, or any other living non-human organism.

By entering this category twice, or entering this category once plus one of the other four-image portfolio categories once, you will automatically be considered for the top award and the title of Travel Photographer of the Year 2019.

What subjects can you include?

Landscapes, seascapes, natural world, environment, conservation, wildlife, flora, fauna, mammals, birds, fish, insects etc.

How many images?

Four images per portfolio.

A portfolio of four related images that focus on one or more elements of the natural world.

This category is open to all photographers aged 19 and above.

How many times can I enter?

You can enter this category as many times as you want to.

What is the category entry fee?
