An exhibition of world class wildlife photos opens at the Natural History Museum in Tring next month.

It will feature 100 awe-inspiring entries in the museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, from fascinating animal behaviour to breathtaking wild landscapes.

Now in its 49th year, the international recognised annual competition has attracted around 43,000 entries from 96 countries, from amateur and professional photographers alike.

The rigorous selection process has brought together a panel of esteemed international judges to choose the best entries based on creativity, artistry and technical complexity.

Through the lens of wildlife photography, the exhibition captures the intrigue and beauty of our planet, giving us a glimpse of the natural world as it has never been seen before.

Chair of the panel, Jim Brandenburg, said: “These talented photographers have made capturing wildlife on camera a true art form.

“They have given us a rare glimpse into moments in nature and places on our Earth that are constantly changing but, through their photographs, can be enjoyed by future generations. I am honoured to be a part of such an important competition.”

The exhibition starts on December 7.
