The 59th edition of this annual exhibition features exceptional images which capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. Using photography’s unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.

“We are facing urgent biodiversity and climate crises, and photography is a powerful catalyst for change.”

So says Dr Doug Gurr, director of the Natural History Museum, which has developed and produced this year’s competition. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, and has provided a global platform to showcase some of the best photography talent from around the world for over 55 years. Launching in 1965, today the competition receives entries from over 90 countries, highlighting its enduring appeal.

“The exhibition reveals some of nature’s most wondrous sights,” adds Dr Gurr, “whilst also offering hope and achievable actions that visitors can take to help protect the natural world.”

The exhibition - which is touring galleries around the country - features a host of awe-inspiring images capturing fascinating animal behaviour and breathtaking landscapes.
