I just received notice that some of the images I entered into the Shell BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition and the Nature's Best Photography competition were short-listed to finalist! Unfortunately, none made it as far as an honourable mention but I was happy to get this far since it was my first time entering. The BBC contest is the largest of its kind with 32,000 entries from 78 countries. I'm not sure the size of the Nature's Best Photography Competition, but it's my favorite magazine and I'm pretty excited to make it this far.
