The top awards for the 50th wildlife photographer of the year competition have been announced at london’s natural history museum. more than 42,000 entries from 96 countries have been submitted to the 2014 edition, which have been chosen for their artistic composition, technical innovation and truthful interpretation of the natural world. from a poignant, black and white shot of the vumbi pride in tanzania’s serengeti national park — awarded the grand title winner — to a photo of a japanese monkey using an iphone, the images reveal a scope of the natural world otherwise unseen by the everyday person. an exhibition will embark on an international tour across six continents, giving millions of people the chance to see some of the world’s wildest wildlife photography.
