BigPicture holds competitions to encourage photographers from all over the world to celebrate and illustrate Earth’s natural diversity. Thanks to the awareness raised by the photographers who joined their annual competitions, the environment gets a bigger chance to be protected and conserved. The winners of BigPicture’s Natural World Photography competition have been released, with Jo-Anne McArthur taking the grand prize for her photograph titled Hope Amidst the Ashes. McArthur captures a resilient kangaroo taking a break in a burned eucalyptus plantation. My personal favorites from the competition are Yung-Sen Wu’s Barracuda (which made me feel like a lot of ‘living swords’ are pointed at me), and Shane Kalyn’s Beak to Beak.
