Thomas wins at Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards 2019!
On Wednesday, we welcomed ITV News to interview Thomas, winner of the Ten Years and Under category at the prestigious Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2019 competition.
Thomas’ entry, entitled ‘Humming Surprise’, features a hummingbird hawkmoth which, as their wings beat around 85 times a second, create a humming sound. Thomas’ 30-second interview, in which he describes luck, determination and perseverance as key to capturing such a shot, was shown on ITV news that evening!
The Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, open to entrants 17 years and younger from all over the world, judges images on their quality, style and originality. Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the largest wildlife competition in the world, attracting tens of thousands of entries each year. Thomas’ entry, along with a collection of the best photographs, will be exhibited at the Natural History Museum, before touring the UK and internationally.
Congratulations Thomas, very inspirational!
