“What’s your nature?”
Hong Kong photographers in Top 100

A picture speaks a thousand words and the Nature Conservancy's “What’s Your Nature?” global photo contest couldn’t have reflected this better. The best 100 nature photos from around the world for this competition was unveiled on June 16th.

The international judging panel chose the top 100 photos within eight categories: Overall, Mobile, Young Photographers (18-25), People and Nature, Underwater, Wildlife, Adventure, and Nature in Cities.

There were 32,704 photo entries from 141 countries and territories all around the world. Four Hong Kong photographers, Leka Huie, Ka Wai Li, William Shum and Francois Wolfaardt, have won a place in the top 100 for their brilliant nature shots.

"We are inspired by the stunning nature photos in the top 100, and are especially proud to see pictures from some Hong Kong photographers in the mix," said Louisa Ho, Executive Director of TNC Hong Kong.

From these top 100, fans around the world can vote through June 30 for their favorite photos and choose the People's Choice winner.
All winners will be announced July 1 (US Eastern time). To browse the top 100, and to vote, please visit here.
