The 2024 World Nature Photography Awards: Stunning Wildlife Captured

Rolex’s Perpetual Planet initiative has partnered with CNN to raise awareness and educate people about key sustainability issues in order to inspire positive action. Meanwhile, the World Nature Photography Awards has recognized two outstanding images in their annual competition.

Firstly, a striking photograph of two gannets engaged in a battle for a fish in the waters near Scotland’s Shetland Islands has won the top prize at the World Nature Photography Awards. This image, captured by Tracey Lund from the United Kingdom, was chosen from numerous submissions to receive the $1,000 prize. Lund described the incredible sight of thousands of gannets diving into the sea after locally caught fish, stating that she took 1,800 images that day but only had two usable ones.

In addition to this category, various categories including animal portraits, plants and fungi, and different types of animal behaviors were also featured in this year’s awards. Ivan Pedretti from Italy won the Planet Earth’s landscapes and environments category with his enchanting photo of winter in Stokksnes, Iceland, showcasing the beach with black sand and the majestic mountain called Vestrahorn. Pedretti highlighted the color contrast of the white mountains with the black dunes and yellow grass in his image.
