Here are the 20 stunning winning photos of the European Wildlife Photographer of the year 2021. European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, one of the most renowned competitions for nature photography, is run by the German Society for Nature Photography (GDT). Spanish photographer Angel Fitor wins the Overall Winner title for his serene jellyfish photograph, which he hopes will raise awareness of ecological disasters that affect marine life.
Same as last year, the competition award ceremony took place online and all the winning photos will go on a tour to be exhibited in Germany and Europe, with the German Horse Museum in Verden as the first venue to hold the exhibition on December 7, 2021.
The competition shared a prize pool worth €32,000 ($37,400) with the overall winner taking home €3,000 ($3,500) and Olympus as the main sponsor of the contest.
