More than 50,000 images are entered into the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition every year but our panel of judges can only select 100 finalists.

Each year the Natural History Museum chooses an additional 25 photographs, from which we ask the public to select the recipient of the People's Choice Award.

Look through the gallery above and vote for your favourite image. Voting closes 14.00 GMT on 2 February 2022.

Please read the terms and conditions before voting.

You can see all of the shortlisted images on display in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London until 6 June 2022.
