It's time for the ‘Oscars’ of nature photography – the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition! Now in its 47th year, the 2011 competition attracted almost 41,000 entries from 95 countries. The exhibition debuts in Australia at the Australian Museum, and features 108 of the best images from the 2011 competition. From playful polar bears to agile cheetah cubs and misty sunsets, the unique photographic collection celebrates the beauty and fragility of the world in which we live. After its Australian debut in Sydney, the exhibition will travel to Newcastle Regional Library, Auckland Museum and Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Tasmania. Photographers inspired by these images will have from 5 December – 23 February 2012 to submit their entries for next year’s competition. For details, see www.nhm.ac.uk/wildphoto. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is owned by the Natural History Museum, London and BBC Wildlife Magazine.
