Another year has gone by. 2017, a prime one. Too fast paced for my own taste, I must say, but that may also be a product of the many things it brought. Starting a PhD, for instance. Alright, alright, enough about me… After all you are probably reading this because you inferred from the title that you would get to see some really impressive images, hopefully nature- and science-related (not the journals, my friend). You inferred correctly. In this post I’ve tried to gather the photography awards that have blown me away during this 2017, and some of my favourite images therein. I am sure I missed some, so please share any awards you know so I can add them! Read on, read on, and get your eyes ready: enjoy!
