In keeping with the time-honoured Australian custom of borrowing from the British (consider our system of government, for example) we’re taking temporary custody of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition (WPY).

From Thursday, March 7 to Sunday, August 25 the WPY will be housed at the Australian National Maritime Museum. It showcases not only the best of the natural world, but the patience, ingenuity and talent of the photographers who spend their time embedded within wildlife so that they can get that one incredible shot.

Judged by a panel of industry-recognised professionals, this year's 100 pictures were taken by some of the world’s best nature photographers and selected for their creativity, artistry and technical complexity.

Previous winners have included Marsen van Oosten for his portrait of endangered golden snub-nosed monkeys, Sky Meaker for her image of a lounging leopard, and David Herasimtschuk for his image of a northern water snake and hellbender salamander battling it out beneath the water.

Tickets to the exhibition are $20 for adults, $12 for children over the age of four, and $50 for a family of two adults and three children (which will save you $16). It will be open to the public from 9.30am to 5pm daily.
