Kan disse bildene gjøre en forskjell?

Her er vinnerne av årets prestisjetunge fotokonkurranse «Environmental Photographer of the Year.

Verdens beste øko-fotografer har skapt røre i årets «Environmental Photographer of the Year»-konkurranse, fra James Broscombes spektakulære lyn til hovedvinneren Chan Kwok Hungs bilde av to hjemløse barn i Katmandu i Nepal.

- Dette er et svært dramatisk bilde som fanger det menneskelige omfanget av hjemløshet. Sammen med alt søppelet, kobler det sammen hjemløshet med degraderingen av miljøet vårt, sier dommeren Lord Smith om Chan Kwok Hungs vinnerbildet, ifølge Daily Mail.

Chan Kwok Hung forteller til avisen han håper det dramatiske bildet kan utgjøre en forskjell.

- Jeg er enormt stolt over å ha vunnet konkurransen. Prisen er svært viktig og betydningsfull for meg, fordi jeg kan dele bildene med verden, sier han

Aldri før har så mange bilder blitt sendt inn. De 13 dommerne gikk gjennom over 10.000 innsendte bidrag fra 105 nasjoner - mer enn en dobling fra fjorårets antall.

Årets vinnerbilder setter fokus både på klodens humane og økologiske drama.

Det er femte året konkurransen blir avholdt, og arrangeres av Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM). Institusjonen består av forskere og ingeniører, og jobber for å fremme miljøbevissthet i verden.

I år kunne fotografer for første gang sende inn video til konkurransen. Du kan se utdrag fra vinneren og andre bidrag her.

Winner - Two children who live nearby to the junkyard with their grandmother in Kathmandu, Nepal. Every day they search the junkyard for something useful that they can resell for money so they can buy food. If they don't find anything their grandmother blames them. Unfortunately, they had found nothing for a few days and the little boy feels very hungry. The photographer gave them some money and a biscuit after taking this photo. Foto: Chan Kwok Hung ( BULLS )

After months of drought caused by the rage of the El Nino phenomenon, men clean the Buhisan Dam of mud and silt to make it ready for use in the approaching rainy season in Cebu City, Philippines. Due to the intense heat, water level in the dam became close to zero thereby causing mud instead of water to be sucked by the pipes and create clogging. Foto: Jamie Unwin ( BULLS )

The photographer was photographing striped marlin preying on a bait ball of sardines when suddenly a Bryde's whale appears on the opposite side of the bait ball, moving toward him at high speed and proceeded to engulf those fish which did not scatter away quickly enough. The photographer also fled, taking this photo as he kicked frantically off to one side. He barely escaped going down the giant's gullet, but was struck on his rubber swim fins by the whale's lower jaw. Foto: Jamie Unwin ( BULLS/EPOTY.ORG )

A male leopard tries to stalk and hunt a porcupine in Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana. The leopard was relaxing in the cool of the riverbed, when the porcupine came to feed on the tree roots protruding out of the riverbank. It ended up in this hunt- the result being a stalemate. Both animals are free and wild. A soft hand held light was used to illuminate the scene from the side.'. Foto: Shem Compion ( BULLS/EPOTY.ORG )
