Every year, the critical Mangrove contest has selected the best photographs as finalists to name the winner. It is an annual and international competition that seeks to highlight some of our least valued ecosystems: mangrove forests, also known as swamps. Wet areas but full of life.
It’s the eighth year of the competition, so thousands of photographers worldwide can contribute their work and compete to win. Six categories are judged by various judges, including wildlife conservation experts such as Beverly Joubert, Dhritiman Mukherjee, Bertie Gregory, and Nadia Aly.
Below we show you the finalist and winning photographs of the contest, where the contestants showed their skills with their lenses to capture from unique perspectives how wonderful nature is.
