Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcases the world's best nature photography and photojournalism on one global platform - igniting curiosity about the natural world whilst shining the spotlight on wildlife photography as an art form. This year's competition attracted almost 50,000 entries from professionals and amateurs across 92 countries.
The overall winners will be announced on 17 October at an awards ceremony in the Museum's stunning, recently transformed Hintze Hall. Winning images are selected for their creativity, originality and technical excellence. As we contemplate our critical role in Earth's future, the images show the astonishing diversity of life on our planet and the crucial need to shape a more sustainable future.
