The GDT Nature Photographer of the Year is split into seven categories: birds, mammals, other animals, plants and fungi, landscapes, nature’s studio, and urban nature. There was also a Prize of the Jury, awarded to Dominik Jaschka for his image Beyond which captured a double exposure image at Saxon National Park in Switzerland.
