Very surprising and great fun to receive both 1st and 3rd place in Biofoto Sigma Cewe Awards 2019!
The contest is organized by Biofoto in cooperation with Sigma and Cewe, and attracted 800 images from high skilled photographers from the Biofoto Norway community. The winning prizes from Sigma are very generous; for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place accordingly they are the Sigma 180mm f/2.8 OS Macro, the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 OS Macro and the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS Macro + gift cards on Cewe print products as well.
Both my images are taken on safari with Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp in Maasai Mara, Kenya. Thanks to Oltepesi guides John Siololo and Johnmark Kiss-may. Having good guides is crucial for the results, and these guys are top notch. Without their help these images would not be possible.
Also congratulations to fellow Norwegian Biofoto photographer and friend Eigil Jensen winning the 2nd place.
