Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Aimed at an audience of all ages, this spectacular exhibition celebrates the drama and splendour of the natural world, with astonishing, creative and sometimes humourous wildlife photography.

The best images from nature

Wildlife Photographer of the Year harnesses the power of photography to promote the discovery, understanding, and responsible enjoyment of the natural world.

Each year the winning images are selected to form part of a stunning exhibition that continually delights audiences through its worldwide tour.

The annual competition co-owned by the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide. 

Hire the exhibition

For many years, the Museum has taken the exhibition on tour bringing the award-winning images to venues throughout the world.

Each image is captioned to reveal the story behind how it was taken and the exhibition is available to hire in two different formats. There is a beautiful back-lit panel version of the exhibition and a more compact version mounted on Dibond (aluminium composite) panels.

This talked-about, accessible blockbuster exhibition is available to hire. The exhibition package also provides opportunities for educational programmes. To find out more, please get in touch.

Back-lit version

This year we're pleased to offer a stunning new light panel version of the exhibition, as an alternative to the traditional framed version.

Framed exhibition version

The back-lit panel version includes up to 100 images. These are contained within compact light panels, creating a spectacular 2D exhibition.

Images are displayed in modern and attractive units with a matt black finish. The slim line units are easy to install and are fitted with LED lights making them efficient and cost-effective to run.

Alternatively, if you have your own light panels, you can just hire the images.

Dibond version

Dibond version of the exhibition

The Dibond version presents the exhibition's 100 high-quality digital images on strong and lightweight panels made from aluminium composite.

This version is much more compact and portable than the light panels, so it is ideal for smaller galleries.

Gifts

The range of retail products accompanying the latest exhibition is more extensive than ever, offering venues the opportunity for an extra revenue stream.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year gifts

A ‘prints on demand’ kiosk can also be hired, giving visitors the opportunity to customise and buy their favourite image, choosing from a selection of framed, formats and sizes. The finished product is then delivered directly to their home.
