Wolverhampton gallery to host world-renowned photography exhibition

The world-renowned 'Wildlife Photographer of the Year' exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will open at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Saturday 22 October.

Featuring exceptional images which capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breath-taking diversity of the natural world, the judges had an extremely difficult task this year. Every entry was judged anonymously on its creativity, originality, and technical excellence by an international panel of industry experts.

The winning images, including the prestigious Grand Title Award winners, will be announced on 11 October 2022 during a glittering awards show hosted by wildlife presenter and conservationist Chris Packham at the Natural History Museum.

Visitors to the exhibition will see how using photography’s unique emotive power engages and inspire audiences. Over 80 images will be displayed on lightboxes to create an immersive experience shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases some of the best photography talent from around the world for over 55 years.

Launching in 1965, today the competition receives entries from over 90 countries all over the world, highlighting its enduring appeal. This year’s award-winning images will embark on an international tour that will allow them to be seen by well over a million people.

The 'Wildlife Photographer of the Year' exhibit will open at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Saturday 22nd October and run until Saturday 24th December 2022.

Entries for next year's 59th Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition open on 17th October and close on 8th December 2022.
