Wildlife Photographer of the Year

19 NOVEMBER 2021 – 29 MAY 2022

Øster Voldgade 5–7, Copenhagen

SEE THE WORLD THROUGH A NEW LENSThe annually recurring competition, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, is the world's largest of its kind, attracting the most talented amateurs and professionals from around the globe. This winter, you can experience the 100 best images of nature and wildlife elected in 2021, when we host the popular exhibition once again.

Every year, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is highly anticipated internationally. The popular exhibition is organized by the Natural History Museum in London, where the 100 images have carefully been selected by an international jury from over 50,000 photos submitted by nature photographers from 95 different countries. The winners of the competition will be announced at a big online awards ceremony which is broadcasted to you live via our social media on 12 October, 2021.
