Natural History Museum to exhibit winning images from Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 competition
Wednesday 28 August 2013
The extraordinary sight of a dugong, a sea mammal closely related to elephants, surrounded by a group of snorkellers – as well as rain-soaked lions in the Serengeti and toads emerging from hibernation – are some of the striking images to be exhibited at this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 show at the National History Museum.
The competition, organised by the museum and BBC Worldwide, attracted almost 43,000 entries from 96 countries. One hundred of the winning images from the competition will be put on display at the museum in South Kensington, central London, from 18 October. They celebrate the diversity of wildlife on our planet, while also drawing attention to the fragility of nature.
The show will then be taken on a nationwide and international tour. In its 49th year, the competition attracts entries from professional and amateur photographers and is judged by a panel of industry experts.
