The prestigious nature photography competition returns this October.
Now in its fifty-first year, the renowned and celebrated annual wildlife photography competition exhibition returns to the Natural History Museum with images of the most extraordinary species on the planet, captured by professional and amateur photographers.
The overall winner of this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year is amateur photographer Don Gutoski for his beautiful and rather bloody 'Tale of two foxes', taken in the subarctic climes of Cape Churchill, Canada. Fourteen-year-old Ondrej Pelánek from the Czech Republic won the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015 title for his image 'Fighting ruffs'. It's not all nature red in tooth and claw, though. Among the images you'll see are a stunning underwater shot of a whale by Michael AW, while urban wildlife lovers will be pleased to see Richard Peters's image of a shadow of a fox on a garden wall.
Please note that last entry to the exhibition is daily at 5.15pm.
