2012 sponsors and supporters
We gratefully acknowledge our sponsors and supporters.
At Veolia Environnement we work with businesses, communities and governments to minimise our daily impact on the environment. As such, it is our privilege to be the title sponsor for Wildlife Photographer of the Year. This competition features the best in wildlife photography from across the world and puts into clear focus the beauty and richness of nature which we all have a communal responsibility to protect.
The world’s most influential natural history photography competition can be traced back to the 1960s when BBC Wildlife Magazine’s forerunner launched its first photography awards. Since 1984 BBC Wildlife Magazine has worked proudly with the Natural History Museum to nurture and develop the competition into an international showcase of images of wildlife and the environment and the ultimate accolade for the finest talents in the business. The winning images may be magnificent and powerful, or intimate and intricate, but they are also moving and thought-provoking. Their sense of wonder, and the breath-taking diversity and importance of the natural world they highlight, is at the heart of each issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine.
