The search for the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009 has begun.

Once again, we are seeking the very best wildlife images - photographs that are not only technically flawless but creative, innovative and surprising - with preference for pictures taken in wild and free conditions, that faithfully represent nature.
