The entries for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 have been unveiled, and the selection is astonishing. Photographs of cheetahs in raging rivers and a fox searching for its prey are amongst the incredible range of highly commended images that have been released in anticipation of an exhibit at Natural History Museum in London on 15 October 2021.
The competition, produced by the museum, received a record-breaking number of photographs from professional and amateur photographers from over 95 countries worldwide.
“This year’s inspiring exhibition will move and empower audiences to advocate for the natural world,” said Dr. Doug Gurr, the Director of the Museum in a statement.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 entries are a firm reminder of the vulnerability of our planet and the variety of its nature. This year’s competition winners will be announced on October 12, 2021, during a “not-to-be-missed” virtual awards show.
