Admire the Winning Images from the Wildart Photo Contest

 A photograph of a cockroach will hardly be imagined as stunning by most people. But that’s exactly what it is in the WildArt Photo of the Year competition. This new wildlife photography contest has been designed by wildlife photographers, for wildlife photographers and will be judged solely by wildlife photographers. The competition features 10 themed categories which are announced every month, at the end of which the best images are chosen and unveiled.

At the end of the year, an overall winner will be awarded. But until then, you can enjoy these jaw-dropping wildlife photos from the contest. From a flamingo framed against a setting sun to a crab covered in bioluminescence, these stunning photos truly deserve to be framed.
