Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.

Launched in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives over 49,000 entries from all over the world, highlighting its enduring appeal. This year’s award-winning images have embarked on an international tour to be seen by over a million people.

Re-engage with the natural world

Dr Tim Littlewood, Executive Director of Science at the Natural History Museum and member of the judging panel, said:

This competition has an outstanding reputation in attracting the world’s very best photographers, naturalists and young photographers. But there has never been a more vital time for audiences all over the world to re-engage with the natural world, and what better way than this inspiring and provocative exhibition.

Photography’s unique ability to spark conversation and curiosity is certainly special. We hope that this year’s exhibition will provide an opportunity for audiences to pause, reflect and ignite a passion of advocating for the natural world.
