The world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in nearby Toronto for its sixth consecutive year on Dec. 1. This perennial favorite for museum visitors of all ages features 100 extraordinary new and awe-inspiring photographs that depict striking wildlife, stunning landscapes and the remarkable beauty of our biodiversity.
Now in its 54th year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is the longest-running and most prestigious of its kind in the world. Organized by the Natural History Museum, London (NHM), the competition attracts tens of thousands of submissions from photographers of all ages and skill levels. Selected by an international jury for their artistic composition, technical innovation and truthful interpretation of the natural world, the exhibition showcases the winners and category finalists with work that calls attention to the beauty and fragility of life on this planet.
The ROM will present a slate of inspiring programs to complement the exhibition, including a ROMSpeaks keynote lecture by National Geographic wildlife photographer Brian Skerry, on Tuesday, Dec. 4. Join Skerry on assignment and into the sea, where his stunning visual storytelling captures the problems facing our oceans and uncovers tangible solutions to this global challenge.
ROM members always enjoy free admission and the benefit of exclusive exhibition previews, taking place on Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1. For more information on ROM memberships, please visit rom.on.ca/members or call (416) 586-5700.
