2019 Wildlife photography competition

After the great success of 2018, the Indlovu River Lodge Wildlife Photography Competition is back. And yes – there are four brand new categories this year!

Category 1 - Animal close-ups
Category 2 - Freeze the action
Category 3 - Birds
Category 4 - Creative visions

From March to June you may enter two photographs per month in each of the four categories.


As always, At Close Quarters photographic guides, Villiers Steyn and Lance van de Vyver, will judge the entries.

This is their single biggest tip: “Enter the right image into the right category! A head-and-shoulders photo of a leopard is not a close-up and if a bird in flight has blurry wings, you haven’t frozen the action. Carefully go through your collection of photos before you choose your entries. After all – you only have a few chances each month…”

A public favourite and judges’ choice winner will be chosen every month, all of which will receive a small monthly prize and automatically become eligible for the grand prize!
