And the Winner is …

After a long and extensive judging process, The East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS) officially announced the East African Wild Life Society’s Photo Competition Winners on 21 July.

Usha Harish emerged as the East African Wild Life Society Photo Competition 2016 winner. Her photo, “A tough battle” emerged as the overall best in the just concluded competition.

An accountant turned photographer, Usha is an avid traveller, loves wildlife and nature. Beautiful colours, animal patterns and animal behavior intrigue her as much as the act of translating those into images using the camera. Usha currently lives in Kampala, Uganda with her family.

The 1st runner– up was Greg Metro for his photo captioned “Mythical”, While Geet Chana’s “Elephant Bulls” took the 2nd runner-up position.

EAWLS will in September 2016 hold a series of exhibitions in various venues around Nairobi to showcase the winning photos from the competition. All the winning photos will also be published in the October-December issue of Swara magazine.

The photo competition was held to commemorate EAWLS 60th year anniversary and to showcase the beauty of East Africa and its vast array of species while providing an interactive and fun way in which people from all walks of life can show their love for nature by sharing their pictures. The annual competition also offers an unparalleled opportunity for exposure for companies and nature photographers and spurs conversations on environmental protection.

Congratulations to all the winners, finalists and shortlisted participants!
