The 2017 Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year Competition, brought to you by Land Rover and Canon is now closed for entries. We had a last-minute rush of entires just before cut-off, and so this week we have put together 3 galleries of weekly finalists.

The grand title winner of the year's competition will walk away with a Big Cat Photo Safari for two, provided by At Close Quarters with flights by Airlink, as well as a Canon EOS 700D with a double lens kit. Runner up prizes include a two night safari for two at Klaserie Sands River Camp or Hideaways' Elephant's Eye while each category finalist will enjoy a case of wine provided by Rhino Tears. The most popular entries on Facebook and Instagram will enjoy prizes sponsored by iSimangaliso and Thule.

The following gallery showcases this week’s finalists.
