The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is one of the most prestigious competitions featuring the best nature and wildlife images by photographers from around the world. The British Natural History Museum owns and organizes this annual competition and exhibition. This year while in London my wife and I visited the exhibition, which is a spectacular display of the winning images of the 2015 competition. You can view the winning images here.
The WPY is now open for entries until 25 February 2016. The competition is run in two stages; the initial entries are in high quality jpg format with 1920 pixels on the longest side. If an image is shortlisted after the first round of judging, the original camera files and high resolution edited files will be requested for final judging. There are 16 categories covering just about every aspect of nature photography so you may have something unique to enter. Remember, this is a very competitive competition so only send your best and most unique images.
