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. Founded in 1964, and organised and produced by the Natural History Museum, it is one of the longest running photography competitions in the world.
Now in its fifty-second year, the 2017 competition received more than 40,000 submissions from amateur and professional photographers from more than 95 countries. Every year, the best images submitted are selected to form the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, which tours venues across the world to millions of visitors, helping to ensure that biodiversity and sustainability remain at the forefront of public awareness.
Last year's show, which Wolverhampton Art Gallery also hosted, attracted thousands of visitors.
Councillor John Reynolds, Wolverhampton's cabinet member for city economy, said: "It's no understatement to describe last year's exhibition as breathtaking and so I am delighted the gallery is hosting the Natural History's 52nd Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition this summer."
