Finalists in Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017

Finalists for the Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition have been announced, with the selection featuring diverse, stunning imagery of wildlife and nature from all around the world.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London and this year's competition attracted almost 50,000 entries from professional and amateurs across 92 countries. Finalist images feature eye-catching scenes such as playful seals captured underwater in France, nuzzling bears at Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park, a colourful quetzal bird with a berry in its mouth, and two-hundred-year-old saguaro cacti at Arizona’s Sonoran Desert National Monument in the USA.

Overall winners will be announced on 17 October at an awards ceremony in the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall. The finalists will be judged on their creativity, originality and technical skill, and an exhibition featuring the images will take place at the Natural History Museum in London on 20 October, running until spring 2018.

More information on visiting is available at the official website.
