Now in its 53rd year, Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcases the world’s best nature photography and wildlife photojournalism. Seen by millions of people around the world, the winning images shine a spotlight on nature photography as an art form, while also challenging us to address some of the big questions facing our planet.
The winning photo in 2017, by South African photojournalist Brent Stirton, entitled Memorial to a species, framed a recently shot and de-horned black rhino in a South African Game Reserve. A photo of a gorilla lounging on the forest floor won the title of Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for Daniel Nelson of the Netherlands. These two top entries were selected from 16 category winners, depicting the incredible diversity of life on Earth, from displays of rarely-seen animal behaviour to hidden underwater worlds.
Images from professional and amateur photographers are selected by a panel of industry-recognised professionals for their originality, artistry and technical complexity. Beating almost 50,000 entries from 92 countries, the top two images are on show with almost 100 others at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London
