As the deadline looms to enter this year's Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year competition, brought to you by Canon and Cape Union Mart, it's clear that no photographer intends to let the competition fizzle out quietly.

   We have been blown away by the calibre of submissions this week; making it very difficult to select this gallery of fine photography. With so many superb examples of unadulterated talent lurking above and below the waters, it's going to be difficult for our panel of judges to decide on the different winners over the course of the next month. One thing's for sure though - they most certainly won't get bored looking through this mesmerising montage!


And if you're looking for an excuse to momentarily escape from it all, click on the 'Next' button above each image to be whisked across the continent from Kaokoland to Kibale... and be back in time for a cup of tea.


One more day to go, photographers! All entries to the competition must be submitted by tomorrow - Saturday, 30th April - so don't waste another second if you want to stand the chance to win one of many fabulous prizes on offer. Just click here now to enter.
