Only weeks remain to enjoy the very best photographic images of nature from the world’s most prestigious photographic competition, Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The 2009 exhibition closes at the Natural History Museum on 11 April.
To cater for its increasing popularity, the exhibition is displayed in one of the Museum’s largest galleries. Photographs are exhibited on a larger scale than ever before and the exhibition also includes an optional audio guide allowing visitors to hear comments from photographers and judges. There is also an audio-described guide for visually impaired visitors.
The annual exhibition of these award-winning images is a highlight of the arts calendar, and inspires visitors to see the environment with new eyes. After it closes at the Natural History Museum in London, the exhibition will continue to tour prestigious venues nationally and internationally.
