Marwell Wildlife declares Photographer of the Year contest winners

Marwell Wildlife has declared the winners of their 5th Photographer of the Year contest that saw hundreds of amateur, pro as well as young snappers hunt the best that the Mother Nature has to offer. The zoo’s Amur leopard cub Kanika snatched the top prize as she explored her fence. The snap was clicked by George Wheelhouse.
Stealing the limelight in the funny and cute category was a Japanese macaque. It was captured on camera playing with a phone as it bathed in the Jigokudari pool in Japan. Winchester’s Suzie Tanser was behind the camera for this strange shot that ensured that she was laurelled winner of the category.
According to reports, she stated that she is not very sure how he got hold of it, but one of the macaques was brandishing an iPhone. Initially, it played with it but then appeared to take a closer look – not sure if he was checking his Facebook, looking for a selfie or just admiring its own reflection.
In the meantime, fourteen year old Eloise Mott, from Southampton, won junior Cute as well as Funny category for her snap of a zebra lying its head on another one’s back. The young person, who has just taken up photography last year, stated that they were on holiday in South Africa. When they were on a safari, it was just resting its chin and she thought that is cute. It popped up outside the car and rested its head for a couple of minutes and then went back to eating.
