Wildlife Photographer of the Year

December 8, 2017 – April 2, 2018


A visitor favourite every year, Wildlife Photographer of the Year returned with a selection of 100 of the most stunning images from around the world.

From the adorable to the elegant, this exhibition showcased award-winning images that told astonishing stories of our natural world while pushing the boundaries of technical skill. 

The 100 winning photos were back-lit on a large-scale for maximum impact, a dramatic setting for some of the world’s most respected nature photographers and wildlife experts. Young photographer categories also featured budding talents, while special categories told stories of the natural world’s beauty and struggles.

The exhibition was developed and produced by the Natural History Museum in London.

The Royal BC Museum added a sketching station featuring specimens from the collection to the exhibition, inviting visitors to get a closer look at, and to draw, animals from the museum collection.
