The Magic of Nature: BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition Winners.

“For its eighth edition, BigPicture continues to encourage photographers from around the world to participate in this competition with a unique purpose: to celebrate and illustrate the diversity of life on Earth. Its aim is to act for its protection and conservation through the power of imagery. The photographs are then submitted to the jury, chaired by award-winning conservation photographer Suzi Eszterhas. This year, the grand prize winner is Jo-Anne McArthur, who won for her photo “Hope Amidst the Ashes”. A powerful symbol as it immortalized a resilient kangaroo taking a break in a burnt eucalyptus plantation. “Nearly three billion animals perished or were displaced in the catastrophic Australian bushfires of 2019 and 2020. This eastern grey kangaroo and her joey represent the fortunate survivors, escaping from an area transformed by humans for agriculture, then devastated by fire,” reads the competition’s website. The other winners and finalists are found in different categories: aquatic life, terrestrial life, “winged life,” water and land landscape, flora, nature art, human/nature, and “Out of the Ordinary” photo reportage.”
