Two months left to catch Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 in Bristol

Posted on: 16 Mar 2023

Hundreds of visitors of all ages have descended on M Shed to marvel at this stunning photography exhibition since it began back in November.


The Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 exhibition runs at M Shed in Bristol until Tuesday 9 May.


With a range of breathtaking photographs that capture the unique diversity and complexity of the natural world from candid captures of animals in their natural habitats to miraculous species not seen by the average human, this is the last chance to get a real glimpse into the precious beauty of our planet.


Tickets for the last two months of the exhibition can be found here.



This impressive collection of 100 powerful photographs gives a public platform to stories of the natural world from all over the world. The exhibition successfully conveys the human impact on the world in ways words cannot, exploring areas of the planet not often represented, including sub-aquatic scenes, battling birds and hungry monkeys.


Now in its 58th year, the Natural History Museum in London’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is widely considered to be the premier contest in the field of nature photography and the yearly exhibition - which is now showing at M Shed – is a chance for the public to see these highly acclaimed images for themselves.


Launched in 1965, today the annual competition receives entries from over 90 countries around the world, the winning photographs are chosen for their creativity, originality, and technical excellence by a panel of international experts.


The winner of this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition was Karine Aigner with her beautiful yet disconcerting capture of male cactus bees enveloping a female – the image can be seen below.

Elsewhere, the winner of the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 was 16-year-old Katanyou Wuttichaitanakorn from Thailand for his visionary capture of a Bryde's Whale surfacing off the Gulf of Thailand.


A keen naturalist and a photographer since the age of 12, Katanyou's work focuses on the wildlife surrounding his home in Bangkok, Wuttichaitanakorn's photograph can be seen below.

Wildlife Photographer will run at M Shed in Bristol until Saturday 9 May, secure yours here.
