Recognising the world's best nature photography every year since 1965. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the Natural History Museum London's annual competition and exhibition highlighting the unique and beautiful relationship between photography, science and art. 

Wildlife Photographer of the Year uses photography to celebrate the wonderful diversity of life, to inspire and inform and to create advocates for the planet. It champions ethical wildlife photography, rewarding truthful representations of nature that display respect for animals and the environment.  

Alongside its conservation message, the competition exists to boost the profile of wildlife photography as an artistic medium and support the careers of young photography professionals.

Entries to Wildlife Photography of the Year have always been judged anonymously, with professional work being considered alongside that of amateurs, giving budding photographers a chance to have their work exhibited among the greats.
