It is estimated that 8.7 million species inhabit our planet. From wild to domesticated, cuddly to fearsome, they fascinate us and address our faith, doubt, passion and dread. We express our interactions with them, and interpretations of them, in color and in black-and-white, using tools that range from digital and film cameras to alternative processes, to iPhones.
Our contest is an opportunity to pause and review your photography, then join our international community of photographers and share your images with our distinguished judges.
