Wildlife Photographer of the Year – 2019 Show at RBCM

By | February 18, 2019

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year, presented by the Natural History Museum, London, UK, returns to Victoria this month.

Opening on February 15 it closes on March 24, 2019. This is the fifty-fourth presentation of this world-renowned international competition featuring images from around the world.

It includes stunning images of animals, birds, insects, plants and landscapes in many situations including “urban wildlife” as a theme, black-and-white, creative visions, photojournalism, and many others.

Expand your horizon into the bigger world of nature not restricted by rigid rules.

While you can see many of the images here http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit/wpy.html, you really must see the back-lit transparencies on display at the Museum in Victoria to fully appreciate the quality of the images.

Whilst the adult categories are fantastic, images in the youth categories should not be dismissed lightly. There are a lot of young photographers who are going to make it in the adult world, including Jess Finley from Burnaby who made his first appearance in 2011 in the youth category and has had images selected in 2014 and 2018. His image of a loon feeding it’s chick was taken “somewhere in the Caribou” in BC’s interior.
