About

Wildlife Photographer of the Year

East Riding Museums and Galleries are delighted to announce that The 55th Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition; on loan from the Natural History Museum, will open at Sewerby Hall and Gardens on Saturday 25 April 2020. The exhibition features 100 breathtaking images from fascinating animal behaviour to remarkable wild landscapes, and this is the fourth time that the East Riding Museums has had the honour of hosting this world famous exhibition, with previous years seen at the Treasure House, Beverley.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world's most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.

After opening at the Natural History Museum on 18 October 2019, this year's 100 award-winning images will embark on an international tour that allows them to be seen by millions of people across six continents, with Bridlington being one of the exclusive UK locations.
