Win your share of R600,000 in safaris, camera gear and cash prizes in South Africa’s most prestigious competition for global nature photography

Sunday Times Travel, together with Wilderness Safaris and Canon, is on the hunt for outstanding wilderness photographs in two categories:

1) Endangered Africa – Images that tell a moving story about the fragile nature of Africa’s rare or endangered wild landscapes, animals and plants.

2) Wildlife Behaviour – Photos that shine a spotlight on the extraordinary (and often secret) lives of wild animals, aquatic life, birds or insects.

So if you’ve snapped some knock-out nature photos, enter them now and you’ll be in the running to win monthly and yearly grand prizes worth a whopping R600,000!

Best of all, the more times you enter, the more chances you’ll have to win.
