Now in its 55th year, the world-renowned exhibition Wildlife Photographer of the Year returns to HMNS, featuring exceptional images which capture fascinating animal behavior, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. This year’s competition attracted over 48,000 entries from professionals and amateurs across 100 countries.

The exhibition sparks curiosity about the natural world through its showcase of the Earth’s extraordinary biodiversity and highlighting its increasing fragility. Using the unique emotive power of photography, the competition inspires people to think differently about their relationship with nature and become advocates for the planet.

Included with permanent exhibit hall admission.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London.
