Over 100 exemplary images are currently on display at the Australian National Maritime Museum as part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. The world-famous exhibition comes directly from London’s Natural History Museum and features the very best of animals, nature, landscapes and more. Now in its 58th year, the exhibition explores the natural world and shines a light on a number of diverse plants and creatures.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year
The prestigious photography competition famously draws thousands of entries from around the world, a far cry from the initial 365 entries it received when it first launched in 1965. This year alone, a staggering 38,575 entries from 93 countries were assessed by an international panel of experts based on the criteria of originality, narrative, technical excellence, and ethical practice.
100 of these exceptional photographs are now on display in Sydney and photography lovers can immerse themselves in the beauty of nature and learn more about the lives of these creatures and habitats through this eye-opening exhibition.
While places, plants and creatures are the focus, the exhibition also strives to inspire audiences and connect people for the larger goal of advocating for the planet.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London. It is currently running at the Australian National Maritime Museum until October. Tickets can be booked here.
