After a very successful run in Cape Town, the 51st Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is now on show in the City of Gold, Johannesburg. Don’t miss out – Wild is giving away five sets of double tickets.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, now showing at 1Fox – The Sheds in Johannesburg, brings Gauteng the very best wildlife and nature photography from around the globe. After sifting through 42,000 entries from 96 countries, the Natural History Museum of London selected a range of astonishing pictures ranging from gripping landscape portraits, fascinating animal behaviour and unique wildlife sightings. The exhibition will be open until the end of July 2016.
Clare Townsend, spokesperson for the exhibition in South Africa, says seeing all these photographic works of art in one room makes for an overwhelming sense of enjoyment. “The exhibit should not be missed by any wildlife or photography enthusiast. It is a source of inspiration and awe, and to be able to see the images up-close allows you to consider the extraordinary lengths and depths this special group of photographers went to in order to capture the perfect image.”
Why not share the exhibit’s many wonders with the whole family? “The exhibit is for everyone, big and small. It’s an important educational tool for children and a visual feast for young and old.”
To give you a taster of the fantastic photography on show, Wild brings you a selection of images that showcase wildlife in winter.
