30 Stunning Nature Photographs That Won The World Nature Photography Awards In 2021

The winners of the annual World Nature Photography Awards (WNPA) for 2021 have been revealed, and the images are breathtaking. Amos Nachoum of the United States won the top place and a $1,000 cash prize for his photograph of a leopard seal preparing to catch a helpless Gentoo penguin.

Nachoum waited for hours on the lonely island of Plano, off the coast of Antarctica, for the right moment at low tide when the seals would enter a lagoon and look for their meal.

The event organizers feel that photography can highlight the magnificence and awe of the natural environment, encouraging us to take action now to ensure a brighter tomorrow for everyone, as humanity’s relationship with Earth gradually turns to one of protection rather than take. It’s difficult to disagree while scrolling through the judges’ picks.
