Intrepidity & Union 2 are amongst the top 100 Finalists
A couple of days ago I received the news that one of my images is on the list of finalists for the “Remembering Lions” wildlife campaign. Here is what was in that mail:
The top 10 winners will be announced on the 24.05.2019 Let’s see what happens. If you would like to know more about this please feel free to read the rest of the information below as well as follow the link to read more about this incredible organisation.
We had more than 2400 entries this year, our most yet, so competition was incredibly tough with amazingly high standards. So to have made it this far is a real achievement, well done and thank you for taking the time to enter!
Most importantly, the competition raised £10,720 (nearly $14,000 USD) for lion conservation. We will be distributing that to projects soon, please look out for updates.
Please feel free to share your good news and shortlisted image(s) on social media. Our aim as ever, is to not only raise funds but also to raise awareness of the plight facing a species. So by spreading the word, you would be helping us in that aim. In the last quarter of a century, lion numbers have declined by half and at around 20,000 left, there are less alive in the wild than there are rhinos and elephants. Not enough people realise the trouble they are in and our book aims to change that.
Please ensure you tag @rememberingwildlife wherever possible and also use the hashtag #rememberinglions.
The finalists are now with our judges being assessed and the 10 final winners will be announced two weeks today, on Friday 24th May, when they will also be published in Digitial Camera Magazine. We will be in touch that day if you are one of those selected, so please be on standby as we’ll need to call in high res files if needed and additional information very quickly.
Thank you again for your interest in and support for the Remembering Willdife project. Regardless of whether you go on to be an eventual winner, your contribution so far makes you part of our photographic ‘Wildlife Photographers United’ movement for awareness and change and I am immensely grateful to you for that.
Founder, Remembering Wildlife
