Wildlife Photographer of the Year

59th Annual

Wildlife Photographer of the Year


Witness the world's top nature photographs from the most prestigious photography exhibition of its kind, beautifully illuminated, up close and in person.


Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a global competition that has showcased the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for almost 60 years. Organised by the Natural History Museum in London, the competition attracts the world's most impressive nature photographers, showcasing a combination of skill, luck, and above all the beauty of the natural world. 

The winning images of Wildlife Photographer of the Year 59 were announced at the Awards ceremony in London in October 2023, and this exhibition at Auckland Museum will be the first time they're on display in Aotearoa. 

Please note that no photography is permitted within the exhibition.
