Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the Natural History Museum

Stunning images from the world’s best nature photographers are being printed at Spectrum Photographic.

The studio is one of the long-term printers of Wildlife Photographer of the Year – the longest running and most prestigious nature photography competition in the world, run by the Natural History Museum.

From now until September, 2017, Spectrum will be printing at least nine sets of mounted prints, three of transparency prints and two photographic print sets for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 52’s international tour.

The images produced at Spectrum will then go on show at venues throughout the UK and around the world, including Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Italy, the USA and Australia.

“We work closely with the Natural History Museum to help produce the touring exhibition – representatives from the museum visit the lab and work with us through every stage of the production process,” said Spectrum co-owner and director Hazel Watts.

“We then deliver the sets to venues in the UK and internationally.”

This year’s competition was the most competitive to date, attracting almost 50,000 entries from professionals and amateurs across 95 countries.

Judged by a panel of international experts, winning images were selected for their creativity, originality and technical excellence.

The exhibition at The Natural History Museum features the resulting collection of 100 exceptional images, revealing the ‘astonishing diversity of life on our planet’ and ‘our crucial role in protecting it’.

Winning images also appear on the museum’s website, in BBC Wildlife Magazine and in international publications.
