Glimpses into animal life

These finalist 2013 ANZANG images capture unique insight into the lives of animals.

FROM CAPTURING SNAPSHOTS OF behaviour to revealing up-close features of a threatened species, photography has the power to educate and inspire when it comes to animals.

These stunning images were finalists in the 2013 ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year Animal Behaviour, Animal Portrait and Threatened categories, where photographers were tasked with the job of providing a glimpse into the secret world of wildlife.

The ANZANGs have grown steadily over the past decade, and this year Australian Geographic partnered with the South Australian Museum to attract almost double the amount of entries – 457 photographers from around the world with 1828 images.

Global competition

Competitors hailed from Europe, North America and Asia, as well from across the ANZANG region (Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea).
