Stunning images unveiled as Wildlife Photographer of the Year arrives in Seaton Tramway

The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will open at Seaton Tramway on 11th February featuring exceptional images which capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. Using photography's unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images 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 the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 55 years. Launching in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives over 50,000 entries from 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.  

With a record-breaking number of entries from 95 countries, the judges of the fifty-seventh Wildlife Photographer of the Year have 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 winning images, including the prestigious Grand Title Award winners, will be announced on 12 October 2021 during a not-to-be-missed online Awards show. Broadcast live from the Natural History Museum in London, the free event will once again be hosted by BBC presenters and wildlife experts Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin and feature photographers, Museum scientists and special guests.

Dr Doug Gurr, Director of the Natural History Museum says, 'These extraordinary images showcase the rich diversity of life on Earth and spark curiosity and wonder. Telling the story of a planet under pressure, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition illuminates the urgent challenges we face and the collective action we need to take. This year’s inspiring exhibition will move and empower audiences to advocate for the natural world.’
