Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2018

The acclaimed wildlife photography exhibition from the Natural History Museum is back with 100 stunning images.

From breathtaking animal portraits and dramatic landscapes, to bizarre species and endangered habitats, this exhibition showcases the most arresting and spectacular images of our natural world.

The competition celebrates biodiversity, promotes conservation and champions ethical photography. Whether young, old, professional or amateur, the photographers featured raise awareness of the beauty and fragility of the world around us.

Launching in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives nearly 50,000 entries from 96 countries.

Once again M Shed is proud to premier the 2018 exhibition alongside the Natural History Museum in London.
