The NPOTY People’s Choice Award
The judges of the Nature Photographer of the Year-contest 2021 (NPOTY) had to choose from more than 20,000 breathtaking, beautiful and stunning images which were submitted in the NPOTY-contest of 2021. The members of our jury can only select 60 images… But there were so many more fantastic images entered in the NPOTY-contest! Therefore we’ll introduce something new this year (and from now on we will do this every year): the NPOTY People Choice Award. The jury members of the NPOTY-contest of 2021 selected 23 images for our first People’s Choice Award.
Who will receive the great honor of our first People’s Choice Award? The overall winner of the People’s Choice Award will be the photo with the highest number of votes, chosen by the public. We also announce one runner-up and three Highly Commendeds. These five winners will be announced early in May.
You’ll find these images in the gallery below and the only thing you have to do is vote on your favorite one! Voting starts at April 1st and closes on April 30th (23:59hrs CEST). People all over the world can vote and voting is possible via our website and one vote per IP-address. (In next year’s edition only people who will visit our Nature Talks Photo Festival can vote.) Please read our terms and conditions below, before voting for your favorite photo.
