“Nothing speaks louder than an evocative photograph that stirs the imagination, tugs at the heart strings and engages the mind” – Mark Carwardine, Chair of the judging panel for the 2008 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition.

The competition, owned by London’s Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine, is regarded as the international leader in the artistic representation of the natural world. This year the exhibition attracted a record-breaking 32 351 images from 82 countries, from both amateur and professional photographers. The exhibition includes 83 of the very best images, across 17 categories, chosen for their originality, creativity and sheer drama.

The exhibition is brought out by NHU AFRICA and is supported by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and co-funded by Iziko Museums of Cape Town. For more information visitwww.nhuafrica.com.
