Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Thu 5th March, 2020 – Sun 11th October, 2020
Australian National Maritime Museum
2 Murray Street, Sydney
Price: $12–$50
One hundred extraordinary photos of the natural world – gathered from across the globe.

A startled marmot, 5000 emperor penguins huddled together, a bigfin reef squid in the shallows. Come face to face with nature at this world-renowned photo exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, when it comes to Sydney on March 5. There’ll be 100 photos of the natural world, incorporating animal portrait and landscapes.

After launching in 1965 the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is one of the most prestigious photography events in Europe. This year the competition received more than 48,000 entries from more than 100 countries. Winning images are selected for their creativity, technical excellence and originality.

Among those was Australian marine scientist and photojournalist Justin Gilligan. His image explores the colliding views on kangaroos, which are considered both a pest and one of our country's most prominent symbols.

Due to Covid-19 safety restrictions, all tickets must be purchased in advance online.

From 9.30am to 5pm daily.
