Manx National Heritage is thrilled to present Wildlife Photographer of the Year on tour from the Natural History Museum in London. The world-renowned exhibition opens at the House of Manannan on Saturday, August 5 from 9.30 – 4.30 daily, closing on Sunday, October 8.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography exhibition of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases some of the best photography talent from around the world. Launched in 1965, today the competition receives entries from over 90 countries.

Laura McCoy, Curator for Natural History for Manx National Heritage, said: “Wildlife Photographer of the Year offers the opportunity to discover the natural world in all its wonder and diversity through remarkable photographs illustrating the precious beauty of our planet.  These spectacular images have been on tour in the UK and internationally, including in Australia, Canada, Germany, the USA, and Manx National Heritage is delighted to be sharing them on the Isle of Man in an exhibition not to be missed.”


The judges of the fifty-eighth Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition had an extremely difficult task. Every entry was judged anonymously on its creativity, originality, and technical excellence by an international panel of industry experts.  

The exhibition will position the photographs among short videos, quotes from judges and photographers as well as insights from scientists which invite you to explore how human actions continue to shape the natural world.

Friends will receive discounted admission to the exhibition, available here.

We are also offering a discount for corporate tickets purchased in packs of 10 or more, available here.
