The world renowned wildlife photography competition from the Natural History Museum returns to M Shed with 100 stunning images.
From balletic whales to lizard-chasing parakeets, urban visitors to fantastical landscapes, this year’s selection is strong on visual drama and narrative.
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.
Launching in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives almost 50,000 entries from 96 countries highlighting its enduring appeal.
