The award, which is regarded as the world’s most prestigious award in wildlife photography, is referred to the Oscar in  Wildlife Photography.

The award winning photograph is that of a common langur hanging on the tails of two others and swinging naturally as humans do. It was short-listed by nine expert juries from over 42,000 entries from across 96 countries.  “This image, captured at Kabini in Karnataka, is special in its own way as it was selected by the juries for the people to select,” said Vijayan.
