# British amateur photographer, Nima Sarikhani, has won this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year People’s Choice Award. The winning photograph is titled, Ice Bed, and is an image of a napping polar bear curled up on an iceberg. It was captured off Norway’s Svalbard archipelago. It was chosen from a shortlist of 25 images, which was previously narrowed down from around 50-thousand entries. Sarikhani says he hopes that the photograph inspires hope that there is still time to fix the climate mess humans have caused.
