'True Love' by Steve Race

There are a lot of animal photography competitions about. Only last month did London zoo announce the winners of the ZSL Animal Photography Prize, which is still available to see until the end of October.

Filling in the space its closure will create, the Natural History Museum has taken over with their Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, which opened on the 15th October, and can be seen until the 23rd March for the price of 12 or 6 concessions. If you can't make it to London, then no worries, find out when the exhibit will be touring in your area.

The annual contest shines a spotlight on the rarely seen moments in the world, and includes a hundred of the best images selected from tens of thousands of international entries. Although the grand title winner has already been chosen, the museum is giving you the opportunity to vote online for your personal favourite. I voted for Curiosity and the Cat by Hannah Lochner, but it is currently Steve Race's True Love that is in the lead.

If visiting the exhibition inspires you, then why not enter next year's competition? There are eleven categories, including Animal Portraits, Animal Behaviour, Animals in their Environment, Botanical Realm, Underwater Worlds, and Urban Wildlife. There are also three age groups for competitors under seventeen years old.

If you need some advice on how to get the best shots then go to one of the museum's free talks, in which leading photographers will be lending out their tips.
