Categories such as Land, Mammals, Birds and Under Water provide a narrative to the different images, capturing the photographer's appreciation and passion for our natural world. We certainly don't envy the judges challenge of having to choose the winners!

Many images warm the heart, such as 'Snow hare' by Rosamund Macfarlane, taken in the snow of the Scottish mountains, or one of our favourites 'A genet feat of a leap' by Marc Albiac from the 15-17yrs olds category, with his picture of a leaping genet against a starry night sky.

Briita Jaschinski's 'Broken cats' photograph broke our heart, showing beautiful big cats being forced to perform at the Seven Star Park in Guilin, China. The animals are drugged and have had their claws and teeth removed. We were saddened to see this is still happening around the world.
