Subway To South Georgia - Honorable Mention in One Shot: One World Competition

April 30, 2014

The image, "Subway To South Georgia," received an Honorable Mention in the 2014 One Shot: One World Competition produced by IPA, otherwise recognized as the International Photography Awards based out of Los Angeles, California, United States.  The competition received over 18,000 submissions from 104 countries.  The image features a New York City subway station set in juxtaposition within Salisbury Plain, located on the Island of South Georgia, which is located in the South Atlantic Ocean near Antarctica.  Featured in the image is a colony of King Penguins native to this region.  Though the IUCN lists the King Penguin as "Least Concern" at this time, scientists are reporting that the warming of the Southern Ocean is causing this species to swim further for its food, leaving less energy for mating and rearing their chicks.  Fifteen of eighteen species of penguins have a "Near Threatened" or worse classification now at the IUCN.  For more information on this competition, please visit their Web site at http://www.photoawards.com .
