More than 2000.
That was the number of entries into the recent Go! Magazine Reader’s Cover Photo Competition. Go! is one of South Africa’s premier outdoor and travel magazines, and having seen the quality of the competition entries on their website, it was always going to be a tough ask for the judges to pick a winner, whose photo would grace the cover of the next magazine to hit the shelves.
The overall 1st place winner was to be decided by a panel of senior Go! photographic staff, but as well as this there was to be a Reader’s Choice award, in which the general public cast their vote online for their favourite picture.
There’s obviously a reason for me penning this post, and the reason is that both of the above categories were won by Londolozi guides.
Current Londolozi ranger Trevor McCall-Peat scooped the overall prize with his stunning portrait of a male lion from the Styx coalition, currently on display as the latest cover shot of Go!, and the reader’s choice award was won by Mike Sutherland, a Londolozi guide from 2013-2015, with his timeless shot of the Makhotini male leopard marching down the road towards his camera.
One only has to look back at a few of Trevor and Mike’s photographic posts on the Londolozi blog to know that both have them have some serious talent. Having long been recognized within the industry, it was only a matter of time before each got some more national recognition.
We at Londolozi would just like to take this opportunity to applaud the two for their achievement. Well done guys, we’re proud of you!
