Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year arrives in Queensgate, Peterborough

The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will open at Queensgate Shopping Centre on 3 June until 7 July.

The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London,
will open at Queensgate Shopping Centre on 3 June until 7 July. This is the fifty-ninth year of
the competition and features exceptional images which capture fascinating animal
behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world.

Using photography’s unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images
shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating
for the planet.

Located in Central Square and free for all to enjoy, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the
most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases
some of the best photography talent from around the world for nearly 60 years. Launching in
1965, today the competition receives entries from 95 countries all over the world, highlighting
its enduring appeal. This year’s award-winning images will embark on an international tour
that will allow them to be seen by well over a million people.

Last year’s competition attracted an astounding 49,957 entries from photographers of all
ages and experience levels from 95 countries. During an intense week at the Natural History
Museum in London, entries were judged anonymously on their creativity, originality, and
technical excellence by an international panel of industry experts.

Dr Doug Gurr, Director of the Natural History Museum says, ‘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

Chair of the judging panel, Kathy Moran says, ‘What most impressed the jury was the range
of subjects, from absolute beauty, rarely seen behaviours and species to images that are
stark reminders of what we are doing to the natural world. We felt a powerful tension
between wonder and woe that we believe came together to create a thought-provoking
collection of photographs.’
