2012’s TOP 30 PICKS: Sunday Times Lifestyle/Green Life Photographer of the Year

Times LIVE | 16 December, 2012 00:04

After trawling through some 4500 environmental images over the past eight months by hundreds of professional and amateur photographers, the judges of the Sunday Times Lifestyle/Green Life Photographer of the Year Awards have settled on three exceptionally worthy winners. Congratulations to 26-year-old Scott Ormerod from George, who is the Sunday Times Lifestyle/Green Life Photographer of the Year. Ormerod’s photograph of a tiny painted reed frog in an orange and red daylily scooped top honours for magnifying a secretive, yet brilliant and beautiful, corner of South Africa’s natural riches. Says one of the judges and editor of Lifestyle Magazine, Nadine Dreyer: “This small, enigmatic frog is a creature we would seldom take notice of. The photographer managed to capture the beauty that is there in abundance if we looked around us.” The two runners-up, in no particular order, are Massimo da Silva from Edenvale and Peet J van Eeden from George. Each runner-up wins an EOS 7D DSLR and two lenses worth R41 598 from Canon. Here are 2012’s most outstanding images – the monthly winners, the highly commended photographs and the Readers’ Choice images as voted by you. Congrats to the winners, and a big thank you to all entrants, who made the Sunday Times’s first-ever wildlife photography competition a huge success.
