There is just over a week left to enter the National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest. The winner will receive a 10-day trip for two on the Galápagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions, along with two 15-minute portfolio reviews with the photo editors at National Geographic.

The categories for this year are Landscape, Environmental Issues, Action and Animal Portraits. IBTimes UK presents a small selection of the animal portraits received so far. You can see more – and enter your own photos – at the competition website. But be quick – the deadline for entries is 4 November 2016.
