The Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is an international showcase of the very best in nature photography. It is recognized for taking a lead in the artistic representation of the natural world and continues to be held in high esteem with a reputation for being the Oscars of the wildlife photographic calendar. This year’s exhibition is known as #WPY53, as it represents the competition’s fifty-third year.
The competition welcomes and receives entries from professional and amateur photographers, and everything in between. There are three age group categories for young photographers aged 17 and under; 10 years and under, 11 to 14 years, and 15 to 17 years.
For the fifty-third competition, the international judging panel of respected wildlife experts and nature photographers reviewed almost 50,000 entires from 92 countries. The exhibition showcases 100 acclaimed photographs from all the competition categories, and presents a huge variety of inspiring images capturing nature’s rich diversity. The jury seeks faithful representation of the natural world, and there are strict limits on what kinds of photographic post-processing and manipulation are acceptable.
It will be on view in Jones Gallery on the main floor.
