Welcome to the 1st Annual Pangolin Photo Challenge!

Throughout the year we will be challenging you to get out and practice your wildlife photography skills. As wildlife photographers, we shouldn’t just wait until we go on a safari…we should be photographing nature wherever we are. This is your opportunity to join in the fun, improve your photography and support our conservation initiative at the same time.

The total photo safari prize fund for 2021 is $40,000!

There will be plenty of prizes up for grabs for the best images in each challenge, an overall portfolio prize, a people’s vote as well as a lucky draw prize, which you can win a safari, just for entering an image.

The challenges are going to adjudicated by some of the best wildlife photographers in the world. They will also be sharing exclusive content, advice and photo tips with you throughout the challenge.

To join the challenge all we ask is that you make a donation (the amount is entirely up to you) to our non-profit organisation, Pangolin.Africa, which is dedicated to the protection and preservation of the four African Pangolin species.

Watch the video below to see how The Pangolin Photo Challenge works.

The Pangolin Photo Challenge 2021 is judged by The Pangolin Photo Hosts and 30 top international wildlife photographers.

Who can enter the Pangolin Photo Challenge?

The competition is open to all amateur AND professional photographers aged 18 or over from any country in the world with the following two exceptions.

  • Employees of Pangolin Photo Safaris and their immediate relatives/household.
  • All Photo Safari Operators and Guides who make the use of Pangolin Photo Safaris properties and services.

This Pangolin Photo Challenge 2021 is divided into four challenges – Birds of the World, Black and White, Mammal Behavior and Creative Captures.

One image will be allowed per entrant per challenge. You may enter the same image in different challenges but this will count against you if you are hoping to compete in the Grande Portfolio prize.

Image Submission

The Image submitted to the Pangolin Photo Challenge must adhere to the following conditions:

The submitted image must have been taken in 2021. The metadata of the file will be inspected to ensure qualification. The capture date will be published on the website along with the image. Please make sure when you export your image from your editing programme of choice that you select to include the Meta (aka Exif) data with the image. This contains your settings for the display.

All images should be a faithful representation of the original scene in the natural world. The subject should be wild and not captive. The scene should not be staged for photography. Composite images will not be allowed (except for night photography images). Post-production adjustments can be used but excessive use will count against the image’s overall standing with the judges.

The judges may request the original image file for review when the shortlist has been completed. This will precede their judgement and declaration of the challenges and portfolio winners and runners up.

Please note. An image that has previously won a national or international nature photography competition prior to The Pangolin Photo Challenge will NOT be considered. If chosen as a winning image and later found to be in contravention of this rule it will be disqualified.

The judges reserve the right to refuse photos that they deem unsuitable at their discretion. The image must be the sole property of the submitter and have no third-party publishing rights/restriction attached to them.

The image must have been taken by the submitter. Your images must be submitted as jpeg files without a watermark. The platform that we use will place a standard watermark on your image to protect it and also allow for the image to be judged anonymously.

The judging process is conducted blindly so all watermarked images will be rejected. Once the winners have been selected competition organisers will delete all the submitted images from their servers or cloud-based storage.

The owners of the winning images give permission for their image to be used for the purposes of promoting the Pangolin Photo Challenge. All entrants give permission to Pangolin Photo Safaris to display their image on the Pangolin Photo Safaris website and social media channels.

The winners also agree, should they deem fit, to allow Pangolin to display their credited image in the gallery of The Pangolin Chobe Hotel

Baiting

No images that have used live or dead bait when capturing the image will be allowed in this photo competition. If the judges suspect that a subject has been coerced, baited or harassed the image will be disqualified from the competition.

To clarify we do not consider photographing a bird or mammal drinking or bathing in a permanent water source (waterhole, man-made lake/reservoir, garden pond or birdbath) to be a baiting scenario. If the body of water has been stocked with fish for example for the purposes of capturing images of birds fishing we would consider this to be baiting. This includes hides where fish are replenished regularly rather than a natural breeding ground for the fish. If you are not sure then please email us at marketing@pangolinphoto.com with information on the scenario in question and we can make a judgement call.

Agreement or participation

By entering an image into this photo competition you agree to and are bound by the rules set out above. Entrants agree to have their names added to the Pangolin Photo Safaris email newsletter database. This will be the primary method of communication and updates.

Judges

The judging of The Pangolin Wildlife Photographer of the Year will be carried out by The Pangolin Photo Hostsand Directors as well as guest judgesselected for their skill and expertise in the field of wildlife and landscape photography. The judges’ decision is final, binding and non-negotiable.
