This year’s show is the culmination of a competition that saw some 41,000 photographs entered for consideration. A panel of judges have narrowed down those initial entrants to just 108 winning and commended photographs across different categories.
The exhibition is open daily from 10.00 to 17.50. For photography buffs or those who can’t make it to the museum during regular opening times, a special ‘After Hours’ event has been scheduled for 25 November and 27 January 2012. ‘After Hours’ will see both the photo exhibit and the Dinosaur Gallery remain open until 22.30. The evening will also feature ‘Picture Perfect?’, a discussion of the ethics of wildlife photography and photo manipulation, as well as offering coffee and live jazz in the museum’s Central Hall.
Due to high demand, tickets for the exhibition must be booked at least 24 hours in advance and specific time slots chosen. Tickets cost £9 for adults, £4.50 for children and concessions and can be booked here.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to make it as a nature photographer, entry to the 2012 competition opens on 5 December. Scout London will bring you more details as soon as they become available.
