About the competition

The Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is the international showcase for the very best photography featuring natural subjects. Each year thousands of entries are received and judged by a specially selected panel of experts. Being accepted into the competition is something that wildlife photographers, worldwide, aspire to.  

The annual exhibition of these award-winning images is a highlight of the arts calendar, and inspires visitors to see the environment with new eyes. Now in its 46th year, the most innovative and imaginative photographic images are judged and selected by a panel of experts. The chosen images form an exhibition at the Natural History Museum that tours the UK and worldwide throughout the year. 

The competition is owned by two UK institutions that pride themselves on revealing and championing the diversity of life on Earth: the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine.
