Wildlife Photographer of the Year arrives at Nature in Art


Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014

The exhibition on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, featuring 100 awe-inspiring images, from fascinating animal behaviour to breathtaking wild landscapes.
 
Now in its 49th year, the internationally-recognised annual competition has drawn around 43,000 entries from 96 countries, from amateur and professional photographers alike. The rigorous selection process has brought together judges from across the globe, to choose the best entries based on creativity, artistry and technical complexity.
 
Through the lens of wildlife photography, the exhibition captures the intrigue and beauty of our planet, giving us a glimpse of the natural world as it has never been seen before.

Chair of the panel, Jim Brandenburg says: ‘These talented photographers have made capturing wildlife on camera a true art form. They have given us a rare glimpse into moments in nature and places on our Earth that are constantly changing but, through their photographs, can be enjoyed by future generations. I am honoured to be a part of such an important competition.’
 
The exhibition at Nature in Art forms part of a tour to ten venues across the UK, as well as internationally.
