Celebrating some of the most talented wildlife photographers from around to world for over 55 years, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will be on display at Gloucester’s Nature in Art this February 2024.
Running from Tuesday 6 February to Sunday 7 April 2024, visitors to the beautiful Georgian museum and art gallery — which is the world’s first dedicated to art inspired by nature — can view a collection of exceptional images from over 90 countries, which capture fascinating animal behaviour, rare species and the diversity of the natural world.
A forest rodeo, a hidden stargazer and a mason bee at work are just a few of the awe-inspiring images featured in the 59th edition of the competition.
The world-renowned exhibition is on loan from the Natural History Museum in London and aims to engage and inspire audiences using the unique, emotive power of photography, shining a light on stories and animals around the world to encourage advocating for the planet.
What's more, this year’s award-winning images are embarking on an international tour that will allow them to be seen by well over a million people.
Dr Doug Gurr, director of the Natural History Museum sums up the importance of the exhibition saying: ‘We are facing urgent biodiversity and climate crises, and photography is a powerful catalyst for change. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition reveals some of nature’s most wondrous sights whilst offering hope and achievable actions visitors can take to help protect the natural world.’
Visitors can see the exhibition at Nature in Art from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm every week, until Sunday 7 April 2024.
Entry to the exhibition is included in the entrance price to Nature in Art, which costs £7.50 for adults; £6.75 for over 60s and under 16s; and children under eight enter for free, with family tickets costing £20 for two adults and two children.
