The Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2013 were instituted to showcase the contributions of India’s best wildlife photographers. Images taken in the wild that best depict Sanctuary’s descriptor ‘Call of the Wild’ Only images from the Indian subcontinent (India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Bangladesh) will be eligible.
Every year we receive a vast pool of stunning photographs, which reinforces the urgent need to conserve India’s wildlife.
All entries go through a strenuous judging process, designed to distill the very best from scores of hopefuls. Judges for this year include one of the world’s finest wildlife photojournalists Steve Winter, renowned filmmaker Shekhar Dattatri and birding aficionado Sumit Sen.
Photographs must have been taken within two (2) years before the date of entry and may not previously have won an award in the Sanctuary Asia Photography Contest (The Call of the Wild) or any other Photography Contest held under the Banner of Sanctuary Asia.
