Photography is a fascinating art and visitors to London get to view the wonders of the natural world in an internationally-famous exhibition.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 exhibition will be held at the Natural History Museum at the heart of the capital showcasing images selected from thousands of entries from across the globe. Now in its 49th year the competition is also jointly run by BBC Worldwide.
The popular National History Museum looks after a world-class collection of 70 million specimens from the natural world.
Millions of visitors visit the museum every year to enjoy the many galleries and exhibitions and the Wildlife Photographer of the Year show is a great pull as one of the museum’s most successful and long-running events.
Last year’s exhibition attracted nearly 150,000 visitors and more than a million others saw the images as they toured venues across the world.
Every year there is an impressive display of talent that gets to be deemed worthy by the panel and the outcome is a beautiful array of pictures that can be considered nothing less than art.
Photographers across the world aspire to be chosen for this great prize and every year there are emerging talents found within the work competing with established names for a chance to be victorious.
The entries are evaluated individually by an international jury of photography experts and could be awarded a place in the top 100 images of the year.
The exhibition premieres at the Natural History Museum on 18th of October with tickets on sale now. The National History Museum is based in Cromwell Road, west London, with the nearest tube in South Kensington. The exhibition runs until 23rd of March next year and will be available to visit in the museum’s normal opening hours and the museum also opens late on the last Friday of every month.
