Discover the captivating beauty and diversity of the natural world as the ROM presents the Canadian premiere of Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Now in its 51st year, and third year at the ROM, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition attracts tens of thousands of submissions by photographers of all ages from around the world every year.
Today, it is the longest-running and most prestigious nature photography competition in the world. Premiering at the Natural History Museum in London before embarking on a world tour, Wildlife Photographer of the Year celebrates nature, wildlife and the very best in nature photography through 100 breathtaking photos.
ROM Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest
As part of our engagement program we launched an Ontario specific photo contest in December 2015. In less than two months, more than 2250 submissions were received by the ROM through Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #ROMwpy. These included an incredible diversity of shots, from across the planet, and of all forms of life, and our Judges selected the top three - which we present here for the first time!
