2013 Galapagos Photography Competition
This competition has now closed.
Update for entrants:
Firstly, thank you to everyone who has entered this year's competition. We have a great selection of images which we will enjoy going through.
The short-listing process is currently underway, following which judging from our panel will take place. We will endeavor to reach a decision as soon as possible but please remember that all of the judges are professional photographers themselves so this may take a little while. We thank you for your patience.
The overall winner of the competition will receive a signed, 10th Anniversary Edition of Tui De Roy's book "Galapagos: Islands Born of Fire" and the winning image will appear in the 2015 GCT calendar. The winner of each category in the competition will receive a copy of GCT's 2014 calendar and the winning images, as well as the runner-up images for each category, will appear on GCT's website.
A selection of the best images will be short-listed by GCT staff and passed onto a panel of experts for further judging. Judges will consider the originality, composition, clarity, technical excellence, overall impact, and artistic merit of each of the short-listed images. They will subsequently select an overall winning image, as well as a winner and a runner-up for each of the five categories.
- Pete Oxford - Naturalist, biologist, photographer, conservationist, author, and licensed National Park Guide. Pete has written two books on the Galapagos and currently lives in Ecuador.
- Tui De Roy - Photographer, author and conservationist who has grown up in the Galapagos Islands and has a huge wealth of experience photographing Galapagos wildlife and scenery. Tui has written a number of beautifully illustrated books on Galapagos.
- Jonathan and Angela Scott - Authors, artists, documentary film makers and both winners of the prestigious international Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. We are thrilled to have Jonathan and Angela as ambassadors of GCT.
Winners will be announced at the earliest date possible in 2014 (please bear in mind that all of our judges are very active photographers and may be in the field and thus incommunicado for extended periods of time so we ask for your patience on this announcement). The winning and runner-up images for each category will appear on the website, and the photographers notified by email.
