Eden Project to host Wildlife Photographer of the Year

 14th Nov 2011

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year entrants are usually only displayed at the Natural History Museum, but this year amateur photographers and others seeking inspiration have the chance to view a further selection of the prints at the Eden Project this winter. Tips for beginners can be found on Mike Browne's Ultimate Beginners Course.

The photography exhibition will undertake a world tour, on which the Cornwall-based project will be one of its stops. As one of the most prestigious photography competitions of its kind, the event is sure to attract a number of photographers keen to find some guidance for their next set of images.

Indeed, as many as 40,000 entries were received from 95 different countries in this year's event, with topics also varying hugely. A total of 100 finalists were then selected from the images. 

The overall winner was an image of eight pelicans covered in oil at a bird-rescue house in Louisiana. Daniel Beltra, a Spanish photographer, captured the image, which encapsulated the tragic aftermath of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year.

The exhibition is to run from 19 November 2011 to 15 January 2012 and will demonstrate the diversity of nature as captured by both amateur and professional photographers from around the world. For more info visit Wildlife Photography Competition.
