The time has come. Just like every year the Natural History Museum of London announced the winners of the renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards during an official ceremony held in England’s capital.
The competition is divided as usual in several categories for both young and adult photographers.
The first prize for adults went to Greg du Toit with the photo Essence of Elephants.
The winners of the younger categories 15-17, 11-14 and 10 years and under were respectively Mateusz Piesiak, Udayan Rao Pawar and Louis Pattyn.

If you are going to London before 23 march 2014 remember that the best photos of the contest are on display at the Natural History Museum until that date. Otherwise an international tour is planned to begin at the end of november.
