Maybe you’ve documented something rare on an exotic adventure faraway, or you’ve simply captured a classic closer to home that you feel deserves to be seenâ€¦it doesn’t matter.
To enter, all you have to do is:
The winning entry will win a £100 voucher courtesy of our friends at The Simply Group which can be spent in any of their stores, leaving you well prepared for your next adventure!

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos, we have enjoyed seeing your shots and really appreciate the hard work and skill that has gone into capturing them. A quick look through the entries on our Facebook page shows what a difficult task we were faced with in selecting the winners. However, luckily we had some highly regarded help when it came to the big decision.
Hennie van Heerden has experienced a swift rise to fame in the world of wildlife photography. Highly regarded by Canon, she has featured in several of their advertising campaigns, including an amazing television commercial for Canon Japan (below). This year Hennie won First Prize (Birds category) in the ‘National Wildlife Federation Photo Contest’ and was a finalist in the world renowned ‘Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ competition. We’re very happy to have her on board. Check out her website.
Besides our main judge, we also picked the brains of Frontier favourite Michaela Strachan for her thoughts on the entries. Amazingly, from all of the entries, both Hennie and Michaela selected the same winning photograph.
And the winner is...
Congratulations to Hannah Jasanne Macdonald, winner of First Prize of the Frontier Wildlife Photography Competition 2011 for her excellent picture of a Leopard mother and cub. Hannah takes away a £50 Snow+Rock voucher

Congratulations to Kirk Green, taking Second Prize with his image of a half-submerged crocodilian in Australia. Kirk takes away a £25 Snow+Rock voucher as well as an Oakley t-shirt.
