Remembering Great Apes is the third book in the Remembering Wildlife series and by covering gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans, is our most ambitious yet. Once again many of the world’s top wildlife photographers, from Tim Laman to Brent Stirton, Art Wolfe to Frans Lanting, have already answered our call to donate images but we have specially set aside a further 10 places for photographers we don’t yet know.
Those wishing to participate are invited to submit their entries using the form below. Your first entry will cost $10 USD and each subsequent entry $5 USD. There is no limit on the number of times you can enter. The competition is open to all, from amateurs to pros (and everyone in between) and all funds raised after costs will go straight to the cause, so whether you win or not, you can feel good when you enter as you are donating too.
We are looking for images of wild gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans in order for us to help tell the story of their lives. The photos need to have been taken in the wild, true to the original scene, with minimal editing and nothing added or taken away from the photo. The competition organizers reserve the right to review the RAW images of the final selection before inclusion is guaranteed.
The file size needs to be a minimum of 3500 pixels longest edge. The judges are our editorial team of our editor Ian Redmond OBE, great ape expert, Eddie Ephraums, art director, Margot Raggett, Remembering Wildlife producer and wildlife photographer plus Ben Brain, editor of Digital Camera magazine, Jonathan & Angela Scott, wildlife photographers and wildlife photographer of the year winners and Mark Carwardine, zoolologist and wildlife photographer. The 10 winning photographers will have their winning photo (only one per winner) used in the book alongside some of the world’s most respected wildlife photographers. They will receive a copy of the book and also an invitation to the VIP launch in London in October 2018. A copy of their image will also appear in a London Exhibition to launch the book and that print will be auctioned to raise further funds for the cause. Finalists will be notified by mid-May and then the final winners will be informed by the end of May 2018.
To enter, register below to be taken to the entry form and start submitting your photos. Deadline for submission is 23:59 GMT, Sunday 29th April. Good luck!
