Due to the building excitement of selecting our winner, we’ve also compiled a collection of wonderful black and white photographs from the Wildlife Portraits category. If you’d like to look back on the entries to our previous categories, such as Roaring Lions & Big Cats, you will find all of the approved entries on our site, compiled in a gallery under each category tab.

Every week we showcase a different variety of photographs from the latest entries to our competition. If you don’t find yourself featured but your photographs have been approved, don’t fret! Our judges are still meticulously looking through all the APOTY favourites while we only feature a few that catch our eyes at the top of the pile.

Each category is equally important and counts towards the draw for the grand prize as our four category winners are judged side-by-side. While each person wins a pair of Swarovski binoculars, they’ve all been waiting for the big reveal of who will be crowned Africa’s Photographer of the Year. If you haven’t yet read our blogs about the properties that are featured in the grand prize, you’re in for a treat.
