Big Picture Natural World Photography Competition | 2017 Winners and Finalists Announced
We’re thrilled to share this year’s spectacular winners and finalists, chosen from nearly 6,000 entries.

Grand Prize
Confiscated, Denver, CO
Britta Jaschinski, England, UK

German wildlife photographer Jaschinski has been devoted to documenting the fractured existence of wildlife in captivity for over a decade. Her passion to protect animals, takes her across the globe to reveal otherwise untold stories about animal suffering. Jaschinski has received many international awards and lectures across Europe on photography and animal conservation issues.
These stools are only an example of the many deeply disturbing items that people try to smuggle through borders and airports across the globe. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stores 1.3 million seized items at a warehouse in Colorado. Trolleys are used to move the confiscated items around the warehouse. I placed the body parts on this backdrop to give some dignity to the objects and pay respect to the animals that loose their lives in the name of status, greed and superstition.

Since its beginnings, photography as an art has brought people together. So it is not surprising that there is a special bond between photographers – regardless of where they come from. The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, an one of a kind international team competition created in 2013, celebrating photography in a way never dreamed of before. Sure, there are lots of other competitions, but there is just one World Photographic Cup.

Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year

Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year is inspired by the proliferation of wonderful food photography in a huge variety of applications. From eye-catching advertising hoardings, to sumptuous editorial features, from tempting food packaging to daily blogs. The Awards celebrate this magnificent diversity in what is truly, the stuff of life.

The Awards seek to single out not only technical skill, but originality of treatment and a real sense of connection with the subject matter whatever it may be. Whether simply an apple on a plate, a cake of spun sugar, a baker covered in flour at four in the morning, or a pot simmering on an open fire in the African bush.

We are looking for professional and amateur alike, in our search for the very best depictions of this marvellously varied subject of food, which unites us all.
