M Shed to host virtual Q&A with Wildlife Photography Chair of the Jury

Posted on: 24 Nov 2020

Find out what it takes to shoot winning wildlife photography.


Bristol's M Shed are continuing a busy run of virtual events next month, as they welcome the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition's Chair of the Jury, Rosamund Kidman-Cox, for a conversation and Q&A session on Tuesday 8 December.


As part of the event, editor, photo-editor and wildlife and environmental writer Roz will present some of the highly-commended and prize-winning shots from this year's competition, providing a personal insight into the jury's rigorous selection process.


The exclusive talk will take place online, with tickets available now via the M Shed website.



Having edited the BBC Wildlife Magazine for over two decades and authored a range of photography-led books during that time, Roz has judged on the Wildlife Photographer of the Year panel for nearly 40 years.


Developed and produced by the Natural History Museum in London, the competition uses the unique power of photography to tell stories, spark conversation and inspire curiosity in the natural world.


This year's competition attracted more than 49,000 entries from around the world - a huge rise from the 361 entrants in its maiden year, 1965.


Images are selected for the exhibition by a panel of international experts, and winning entries are recognised for their creativity, originality and technical excellence.



As part of next month's one-off virtual event, Roz will provide viewers with a unique opportunity to experience breath-taking, fascinating, and at times, controversial images of the natural world from the perspective of a specialist member of the selection panel.


You'll also get the chance to ask your own questions during the event, gaining inside knowledge of the stunning photographs submitted to this year's competition and finding out exactly what makes them worthy of winning the prestigious award.


Tickets must be booked in advance, and are available at £5 for adults or £4 for concessions. For more information, or to book your tickets, head to the M Shed website.
