On loan from the Natural History Museum in London – Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcases exceptional images of animal behaviour, spectacular species, and the breath-taking diversity of the natural world.

With a record-breaking number of entries from 95 countries, the judges of the 57th Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition had the toughest job yet.

Every entry was judged anonymously on its creativity, originality, and technical excellence by an international panel of industry experts.

The competition is the most prestigious photography event of its kind. Launched in 1965 and attracting only 361 entries, today the competition receives over 50,000 submissions from all over the world.

This year’s award-winning images will embark on an international tour and be seen by well over a million people. Budding wildlife photographers can submit their images for next year’s competition until 9 December 2021.

The exhibition at M Shed is sponsored by Precision Resources Group (PRG) with the accompanying engagement programme sponsored by the University of the West of England (UWE).

It runs until 5 June 2022 and tickets are on sale now at the Bristol Museums website.

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, pre-booking a time slot is highly recommended to guarantee entry.

The exhibition and museum shop will be open after-hours on Tuesday 7 December for people who wish to visit at a quieter time.

Cost £7 and £5 concessions. Under 16s free.
