Winners of Nature TTL Photographer of the Year 2022 Announced

The Nature TTL Photographer of the Year competition has announced its winners of the 3rd annual competition. Over 8,000 images were submitted to the competition this year from all over the world.

The grand prize was secured by Dennis Stogsdill for his image A Cat and Its Prize, featuring a caracal with a flamingo held tightly in its jaws.

“This is nature at its most raw. The caracal is soaked from chasing the flamingos through the waters, but has come out on top,” says Will Nicholls, Founder of Nature TTL. “The contrasting colours against the dark surroundings really make this image pop. A wonderful scene to have been able to observe no doubt, let alone capture exquisitely on camera.”

Stogsdill takes the £1,500 grand prize and title of Nature TTL Photographer of the Year 2022.

13-year-old Achintya Murthy, from India, was crowned the Young Nature TTL Photographer of the Year 2022 with his image of two malabar parakeets fighting in Karnataka, India.
