Wildlife Photography comes to Natural History Museum

26th October 2011

Animal-lovers visiting central London hotels can take in the sights of the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year series at the famed Natural History Museum.

Guests are invited to see stunning pictures of the natural world at the prestigious exhibit, which attracts thousands of amateur and professional photographers of all ages from around the world.

Only the best photos submitted are chosen for the Natural History Museum's exhibit, which will go on to tour the rest of the country.

"The images provide a stunning and thought-provoking insight into the natural world, from underwater scenes to urban wildlife," commented visit London.

Nearly 110 of the best images have been hand-picked by a jury of veteran photographers and wildlife experts, who had the arduous task of shifting through almost 41,000 entries sent in from nearly 100 countries.

Andy Rouse, from Wales, who captured the moment that a mountain Gorilla charged at him, will be among the top exhibits.

Joining him is 13-year-old Ilkka Rasanen from Finland, who impressed judges with his use of lighting in a picture Tern Style.

Claiming the Weolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year-award is Spain's Daniel Beltra for his piece, Still Life in Oil.

Pester Power won Poland's Mateuz Piesiak the accolade of Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

The exhibit is jointly owned by the Natural History Museum and the BBC Wildlife Magazine, with admission costing £9 for adults and £4.50 for children.

Looking for help in renovating its famed Central Hall, dominated by Dippy the Diploducus, the Natural History Museum has recently asked for donations.
