Now in its fifty-second instalment, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition provides a showcase for the world’s very best nature photography The Wildlife Photographer of the Year series consists of a major exhibition at the Museum and a worldwide tour.
The competition is hosted by the world-renowned and trusted British institution, the Natural History Museum. This year’s competition was the most competitive to date, attracting almost 50,000 entries from professionals and amateurs across 95 countries. Winners were selected and judged by a panel of international experts. Winning images are selected for their creativity, originality and technical excellence. The exhibition will feature the collection of 100 exceptional images, revealing the astonishing diversity of life on our planet and highlighting our crucial role in protecting it.
