One of the stunning photographs in the running, is an orangutan using a large banana leaf to shield itself from the driving rain shot by Photographer Andrew Suryono. According to the Mail Online, Suryono said: ‘I was taking pictures of some orangutans in Bali and then it started to rain. ‘Just before I put my camera away, I saw this orangutan take a banana leaf and put it on top on his head to protect himself from the rain. ‘I immediately used my DSLR and telephoto lens to preserve this magic moment.’

There is still one month for anyone from amateurs toprofessionals to enter the competiton. The awards was launched in 2008 to support and cultivate a photographic culture.

Be inspired!
