About Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Experience this iconic exhibition as it returns to Edinburgh on a grand scale.
Taking over our largest exhibition gallery for the first time, this immersive and atmospheric display of 100 awe-inspiring images presents the incredible diversity and fragility of life on Earth in a new and spectacular way.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind. For more than 50 years it has showcased the very best in nature photography and presented the beauty and drama of the natural world, from fascinating animal behaviours to breath-taking wild landscapes.
The competition launched in 1965 with 361 entries. In this, its 53rd year, it has received almost 50,000 entries from amateur and professional photographers from 92 countries, highlighting its enduring global appeal.
On loan from the Natural History Museum in London, this world-renowned touring exhibition features acclaimed photographs displayed on large-format, backlit panels, as they are at the Natural History Museum’s own exhibition showing. Learn how the photographers captured their award-winning images, and come face-to-face with some of nature’s most astonishing and challenging sights.
