The Fight With The Mouse In The Subway Wins The Election Of People As Wildlife Photographer Of The Year
Just a few months ago, we were looking at the 25 finalists of the LUMIX People’s Choice Award, wondering what picture was going to take the prize. And all the power was in our hands since the voting was open to the public, with a deadline of Tuesday, February 4, 2020. As the day went by, everyone waited in advance for the news of the Natural History Museum. And finally, they announced which shot the winner was, and it’s none other than Sam Rowley’s “Station Squabble” fan favorite!
The perfect moment in the London Underground shows two mice fighting over food scraps. The photographer had to rely on patience since he had seen the fights before, so he decided to just lie on the floor and wait. And it was definitely worth it! "The competition attracts more than 48,000 participants from 100 countries, highlighting its lasting appeal," said a museum spokesman. That is a difficult competition to overcome! The winners of the main competition (both the grand title and the winners of the category) win a cash prize; however, the winner of LUMIX People's Choice does not receive a monetary price. Even so, media coverage and the exposure of such an established contest is enough to attract thousands of tickets!
