Global Vision Award
A tiger peers at a camera trap it triggered during a morning hunt in the forests of northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
Taken by Steve Winter forNational Geographic magazine and the Panthera wild cat conservation group, the picture won the Global Vision Award “for extensive long-term projects that focuses on the environment, science, or natural history,” Shaw said.
“What’s great about [Steve Winter's] work is that it’s not only about the animals but also humankind’s interactions with the natural world, both in a positive and negative sense.”
Among the two Global Vision runners-up is David Guttenfelter for his National Geographic assignment “Japan’s Nuclear Refugees” (see pictures). (The National Geographic Society owns National Geographic News.)
