The Exhibition

The world-renowned exhibition, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will be on display in the House.

It is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world's most astonishing and challenging sights for over 55 years.

Launching in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives over 50,000 entries from all over the world, highlighting its enduring appeal. This year's award-winning images have embarked on an international tour that will allow them to be seen by well over a million people.

With a record-breaking number of entries from 95 countries, the judges of the 57th Wildlife Photographer of the Year have had the toughest job yet. Every entry was judged anonymously on its creativity, originality, and technical excellence by an international panel of industry experts.

Using photography's unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.
