Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2008 tickets on sale

18 August 2008

Tickets for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, opening in October at the Natural History Museum, go on sale today.

The popular exhibition displays the winning images from the world's most prestigious wildlife photography competition.

Tickets go on sale early because of the huge popularity of the exhibition. Last year it attracted a record 134,000 visitors and received a record 32,000 entries from 82 countries.

Visually stunning, sometimes humorous and often thought-provoking, each image tells a story.

The 2008 competition winners have been picked but they are still top secret. 

However, 2 commended images have been released, including the image at the top of the page of a vulture called Night Griffon - it was taken by Russian teenager Safie Al Khaffaf and was a highly commended image.

And an image showing a daddy long legs under water in the Canary Islands taken by Jordi Chias Pujol of Spain.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year opens on 31 October at the Natural History Museum. Buy tickets in person at the Museum or now online.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is owned by the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine
