SEE THE BEST 100 IMAGEs
Reconnect with the wonder of nature through the magic of photography.
Take a journey into the secret places of the world around us. Witness the extraordinary talent of photographers who travel to the ends of the earth to capture the fleeting moments that say so much about the majesty of nature - and often, our complicated place in it.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year - run by the Natural History Museum in London - is a global celebration of the world's very best nature photography.
Judged by a panel of international experts, winning images are selected for their creativity, originality and technical excellence. The competition is open to the world's top professionals, as well as amateurs - who sometimes create big surprises!
Be captivated as we showcase the year's top 100 photos, selected from more than 50,000 entries, across 95 countries.
On display, you'll see the 52nd year's winning entry, up close. You'll also be able to enter and vote for our local 'People's Choice' award.
Be inspired. Reconnect with the wonder of nature through the magic of photography.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 31 May to Monday October 2017.
