This event has now finished.


The fifty fifth Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will immerse you in the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. Encounter the beauty and fragility of wildlife, see fascinating animal behaviour and get to know extraordinary species. Go deeper and discover the surprising - and often challenging - stories behind the images during a time of environmental crisis.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year annual competition provides a showcase for the world’s very best nature photography. The competition is owned and operated by the world-renowned Natural History Museum. A panel of international experts selected the awarded images from almost 50,000 entries by the world's best photographers.
