Posted 31 months Ago · art · 38966 Views

To mark the 50th anniversary of the prestigious and world renowned "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" competition, a new category has been created called "People's Choice Award", which lets the public choose the winner. The panel of judges have already narrowed down the selection to 50 from the 41,000 that were submitted.

"If you've ever puzzled over why one image wins out over another, this is your chance to have your say," says Tom Ang, a member of the 2014 judging panel. "But with so many outstanding shots and just one vote per person, the pressure is on to cast it wisely."

We've selected a few of our favourites below, but be sure to head over to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year website to cast your vote before 5 September, 2014. The winer will be announced in October, 2014.
