Wildlife Photographer of the Year positions itself as a global platform for amateur and professional photographers and the photos featured in its competition are seen by millions of people worldwide. The 2021 competition saw over 50,000 photos entered from 95 different countries. The 25 images below are currently on display at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London, until the voting ends on February 2, 2022. The winner will then be showcased until the exhibition closes on June 5, 2022.
The top five People’s Choice Award images will also be displayed online, joining the winners of the fifty-seventh Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition chosen by the panel of judges and announced earlier this year.
The 25 photos below are up for a public vote on the Natural History Museum’s website.
While the vote for People’s Choice is ongoing, the 58th annual competition will close for entries on December 8. Those interested in entering can do so and read the official rules on the Wildlife Photographer of the Year website.
