Check out the most amazing wildlife photography on the planet...
The world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to M Shed on Saturday 12 November with 100 awe-inspiring images of fascinating animal behaviour and breathtaking wild landscapes.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, showcasing the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.
From balletic whales to lizard-chasing parakeets, urban visitors to fantastical landscapes, this year’s selection is strong on visual drama and narrative.
Launched in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, the competition today receives almost 50,000 entries from 96 countries highlighting its enduring appeal and fascination for the public and professional photographers alike.
Judged by an international jury of photography experts, the images were selected for their creativity, artistry and technical complexity. This year’s 100 award-winning images will embark on an international tour that allows them to be seen by millions of people across six continents.
Events taking place to accompany the exhibition include a talk and urban-wildlife photography workshop by Bristol-based finalist Sam Hobson and a run through of the selected photos by competition judge Roz Kidman Cox, who will also give an insight into the judging process.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London.
Tickets cost just £5 for adults (concessions £4), with free entry for children under-16 (under-12s must be accompanied by an adult).
