The four judges of The Greatest Maasai Mara Photographer of the Year competition were chosen for their global recognition, local knowledge and unquestionable photographic skills, providing credibility and integrity to the judging process.
- Creativity and a fresh perspective of everyday scenes photographed in refreshing ways
- Visual impact & emotional response
- Technical difficulty and execution – does the composition, lighting and background take the image to the next level?
- Please note that while still a factor, action and rarity of the sighting are less important in the judging process
There are no category restrictions, and entries of all subject matter will be accepted: landscape, wildlife, portrait, behavioural, documentary, black & white etc. Entries of river crossings from the Great Migration will however only be considered in the months from June through October. In terms of editing, post-production should be faithful to the original mood and scene, with nothing removed or added. For the full set of competition rules, please read the T&Cs or view the FAQs.
