2015-16 exhibition 

From intimate portraits to layered motion stills, the award-winners will blend startling visuals, compelling narratives, and a passion for the natural world.

The exhibition will feature more than 100 images exhibited on sleek back-lit photographic panels, creating a uniquely cinematic effect amid the splendour of the Waterhouse Gallery's Victorian architecture.

Look out for your chance to choose your own Wildlife Photographer of the Year winner with our People’s Choice vote, also launching 16 October.
