Each year, amateur and professional photographers from more than 90 countries submit over 45,000 entries. The 100 winning images tour globally as part of our world-renowned and most popular temporary exhibition.
The annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition uses the universal power of photography to promote the discovery, understanding and responsible enjoyment of the natural world. The winning images form a stunning exhibition that continually delights audiences on its worldwide tour. With astonishing, creative and sometimes humorous wildlife photography, this spectacular exhibition celebrates the drama and splendour of the natural world. Each photograph is captioned to reveal the story behind where, when and how it was taken.
The exhibition is available to hire in two different formats. There is a beautiful back-lit panel version and a more compact version mounted on Dibond (aluminium composite) panels.
The 100 images of the exhibition are available for hire to a wide range of gallery spaces and sizes, and for venues such as museums, science centres, art galleries and other public venues in two formats: a light panel version, requiring 500m2 of space, or a dibond version, which fits into spaces of approximately 300m2.
Each version of the exhibition includes:
A detailed toolkit specifying hanging and other technical details;
A selection of optional digital content to enhance the visitor experience;
Extensive Marketing, Social Media and Press Guidelines, which offer in-depth support for local marketing of the exhibition including: sample press releases, marketing mock-ups, a selection of marketing images.
Light panel exhibition
The back-lit panel version includes up to 100 images. These are contained within compact light panels, creating a spectacular 2D exhibition. Images are displayed in modern and attractive units with a matt black finish. The slimline units are easy to install and are fitted with LED lights, making them efficient and cost-effective to run.
Alternatively, if you have your own light panels, you can hire the images separately.
The Dibond version presents the exhibition's 100 high-quality digital images on strong and lightweight panels made from aluminium composite. This version is much more compact and portable than the light panels, so it is ideal for smaller galleries.
Past and Future Venues
The exhibition is seen by over a million visitors on its annual tour, travelling to over 60 venues in 15 countries across 5 continents.
