When is the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition?

This year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition returns to Cardiff starting on the 27 May and closing on the 29 August.

What to expect from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition

The exhibition will feature 100 stunning backlit images that ignite curiosity by showcasing Earth's extraordinary diversity and the fragility of the natural world.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a global platform showcasing the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights. This year's competition received over 49,000 entries from all over the world.

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. Judged by a panel of industry-recognised professionals, the images are selected for their creativity, artistry and technical complexity.

Find out more information on the exhibition on National Museum Cardiff’s website.

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