Disclaimer: This exhibition contains some photographs that may be distressing to certain visitors. Some of the more difficult images of Wildlife Photographer of the Year are in the competition’s photojournalism categories, which investigate the relationship between humans and the natural world. In these categories we often see images exposing the effects of human impact or the illegal wildlife trade. The photojournalism categories have been a key element of the competition's story for many years and the images illustrate how our attitudes, decisions and actions impact the natural world.
By awarding these images in the competition, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year jury and the Natural History Museum hope to showcase meaningful photojournalism and raise awareness of conservation issues.
