    • From breathtaking animal portraits and dramatic landscapes, to bizarre species and endangered habitats, this exhibition showcases the most arresting and spectacular images of our natural world. The competition celebrates biodiversity, promotes conservation and champions ethical photography. Whether young, old, professional or amateur, the photographers featured raise awareness of the beauty and fragility of the world around us. Awarded images from the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year will be displayed at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum as part of an international tour. The acclaimed competition, first held in 1965, showcases the most impressive images of the natural world, from breath-taking animal portraits and dramatic landscapes, to bizarre species and endangered habitats. The 2018 edition of Wildlife Photographer of the Year celebrates biodiversity, promotes conservation, and champions ethical photography, with winning photographs chosen from over 45,000 submissions by expert judges for their creativity, originality and technical excellence. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London, with the award-winning images seen by millions across the globe each year, and the Herbert is the first West Midlands gallery to host the exhibition.
