2014 exhibition celebrates 50 years of the WPY competition

This year, the WPY competition has taken a fresh approach to challenge photographers. New categories have encouraged images of more diverse species and inspired photographers to think differently about the way they tell stories and use new technologies. From intimate portraits to layered motion stills, the award-winners blend startling visuals, compelling narratives, and a passion for the natural world.

Images are exhibited on sleek back-lit photographic panels, creating a cinematic effect amidst the splendour of the Waterhouse Gallery's Victorian architecture. There are more than 120 photographs to enjoy close up.

To celebrate 50 years of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition we are also displaying historic images on interactive tablets. A film tells the story of the competition and the changes in nature photography over the past half century.

Get closer to the stories behind each image

Each image in the exhibition is accompanied by a caption telling its story and giving photographer and technical details.

During busy periods in the exhibition you can view the captions on your mobile device. Visit www.nhm.ac.uk/wpy/captions and enter the unique four digit code displayed next to the image in the gallery.
