World Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition

  Fri 28 Feb 2020 to Sun 16 Aug 2020
Auckland War Memorial Museum

Direct from the Natural History Museum, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the longest-running nature photography competition in the world. The exhibition has been extended until Sunday 16 August.

The 100 winning images featured in this year’s exhibition illustrate the majesty and vulnerability of life on our planet. Whilst inspiring curiosity and wonder, the images also remind us of the fragility of our planet and our responsibility to protect it.

A panel of international experts selected the awarded images from almost 50,000 entries by the world's best photographers. Amongst those winners is 14-year-old Aucklander, Cruz Erdmann, who won the title of Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his snap of a big fin squid illuminating the inky blackness of the ocean.

This free exhibition is a chance to view these stunning photographs, beautifully illuminated, up close and in person.
