Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition

 

AUAHA ATEA NUI SPECIAL EXHIBITION HALL
Exhibition Temporarily Closed
FREE with museum entry

Come and experience the world’s most prestigious international nature photography exhibition, on now at Auckland Museum.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, direct from the Natural History Museum in London, is a must-see, world-class free exhibition that showcases the 100 winning images from the competition.

This is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights. The exceptional images in this exhibition capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breath-taking diversity of the natural world. 

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 is your chance to discover the surprising - and often challenging - stories behind the images during a time of environmental crisis. On now, for a limited time only!
