From laying fish and crows to grizzly bears to fighting reindeer and kissing crows, the best wildlife photography of the year will leave you breathless.
This is a great time of year when we are amazed to see the best wildlife pictures of the last 12 months. The Natural History Museum in London developed and produced the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, which dates back to 155. As we have come to expect from this annual competition, the winning selections are a significant achievement in their own right. Each submission, of which there were more than 50,000 at the time, was evaluated anonymously by a panel of judges and evaluated according to “originality, narrative, technological excellence and ethical practice”.
This year’s competition included 19 different categories, including some new ones, such as “Ocean – The Bigger Picture” and “Wetlands – The Bigger Picture.” And in keeping with tradition, the competition also awarded two grand title winners: Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, held at the Natural History Museum in London, will feature the top 100 images from October 15, 2021.
