Wildlife photographer of the year is an international wildlife photography competition that takes place every year under the auspices of the London Museum of Natural History and BBC Wildlife magazine.
In 2018, this prestigious competition attracted more than 45,000 amateur and professional photographers of all ages from 95 different countries. At the end of the selection, the award-winning photos are on display at the London Museum and then on display at other museums around the world.
It is therefore an exceptional event for the Knowledge Factory and the Museum of Natural History of Rouen which host the exhibition Wildlife photographer of the year. From June 27 to October 20, 2019, the public will be able to admire the hundred most beautiful images of the contest presented, for the first time in France, on spectacular luminous screens.
From a tiny Oregon ladybird to the majestic Mathoja, Bostwana panther, these photographs are beautiful and moving. Creativity, originality and technical quality combine the look of the photographer who invites to discover the beauty and diversity of the animal world and its fragility, too. All intend to testify with the aim of raising public awareness of the threats that, from year to year, weigh more and more on the biodiversity of our planet.
