A few months ago, we found out who the best wildlife photographer of 2019 was and congratulated Yongqing Bao on the immediate deserved success. The photo he won entitled “The Moment” shows a young fox and a marmot in a moment of life and death. He has a selection of photographs from the Natural History Museum from all over the world that didn’t make it to the finals of the first competition and has given you the power to decide what deserves the fan’s favorite title.

Bored with more information about the competition, Panda has contacted a museum spokesman. They gladly answered some questions and provided additional insights. Turns out, this year’s competition is the 55th! “The competition draws more than 48,000 entries from 100 countries, which exemplifies its enduring appeal,” they said.
