Iziko is once again able to host this world-class exhibition that showcases the very best natural history photography. The competition is owned by two UK institutions that pride themselves on revealing and championing the diversity of life on Earth – the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine – and is brought to South Africa by NHU AFRICA in partnership with Iziko Museums.

Being placed in this competition is something that wildlife photographers, worldwide, aspire to. Professionals win many of the prizes, but amateurs succeed too. And that is because achieving the perfect picture combines skill, vision, originality, knowledge of nature, and luck. Each year the thousands of entries are judged by a specially selected expert panel.

The exhibition offers an extraordinary insight into the beauty, drama and diversity of the natural world.
