Mike makes the final cut of Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Lion playing with a Leopard Tortoise by Mike CullisIt’s that time of the year again and the results of the World famous prestigious Veolia Wildlife Photographer of The Year competition are now published. The competition is organised by the BBC Wildlife Magazine, Natural History Museum and Veolia Environment and boasts Worldwide coverage. Some 48,000 images were submitted from Professional and Amateur photographers from 98 countries; 62% of entries coming from professional photographers and the panel of 14 judges were drawn from people at the top of their photographic profession from around the world. Tenby Camera Club’s Mike Cullis entered some images from his recent trip to the Masai Mara into the Mammals Behaviour section and his shot of a female Lion playing with a Leopard Tortoise made it through two selection processes and into the final cut.  Whilst this didn’t make it to the award winning 5 images it was an impressive achievement to have made it so far.  Mike has had similar images showcased in the BBC Wildlife Magazine, Advanced Photographer and National Newspapers. Well done Mike, an incredible achievement. The photo in question features in Mike’s newly developed presentation ‘Images of Masai Mara’ that focuses in on the behaviour of animals in the Mara. Why not ask him along to your club? His details are in our presenters section here.
