The photos in the running include Steve Levi's image titled Tender, portraying a family of polar bears; Aaron Gekosk's Losing the Fight, featuring a dressed up orangutan; Sam Rowley's image of fighting mice on the London Underground and Valeriy Maleev's photograph of a long-eared jerboa.

In the shortlist there are photographers from 16 countries, including Lebanon, Mexico and Australia.

Voting is open until 2pm (GMT), Tuesday, February 4, and an exhibition of the shortlisted images is currently on display at the Natural History Museum. The display will be open until Sunday, May 31.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the longest-running photography competition in the world. Tim Littlewood, executive director of science at the Natural History Museum, said of the prize: "The Lumix People’s Choice images capture the essence of the competition; they all ignite a reaction about the natural world and make you see it differently.

"Showcasing breath-taking beauty, compassion and cruelty, it is impossible not to be moved by them," he added.
