2017 Grand Prize Winner
Angela de Wild
Photo: Common Frog (Rana temporaria)
“My name is Angela. I have been fond of amphibians since childhood. I started taking pictures of them about 15 years ago. At the same time I became a volunteer for Dutch amphibian and reptile protection. The pictures are taken in Europe. With my pictures I try to express the beauty of amphibians, so others will love and preserve them too.”

Amphibian populations worldwide are in the midst of a mass extinction crisis, yet most people are completely unaware! We need your help in getting the word out: we encourage all nature lovers to enter the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Photo Contest! The contest will raise awareness of the amphibian extinction problem by getting people involved and interested, and the photos will be used on t-shirts, stickers, books, and in webpages and social media posts to both publicize our cause and raise funds for SAVE THE FROGS! amphibian conservation efforts.
“I love this – the photo contest! Not only will I enter, I’ll promote it amongst other nature photographers I know in Colorado and elsewhere. The $10 entry is low enough to encourage participation with a win-win outcome for the photographer as well as STF! with your 50-50 jackpot split. Such a great idea!
