Leopard Love @ Yaron Eini

Inspired by the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, the Ontario-wide ROM Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest returned for a 8th year –with incredible prizes from our friends at Henry’s!

From November 12, 2022 to March 12, 2023, ROM invited amateur and professional photographers to share their captivating images of the natural world on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #ROMwpyON or #ROMwpyJR (for ages 13 to 17).

An impressive range of shots were submitted and viewed by our judges:  Mark Peck, ROM Ornithologist; Paul Eekhoff, ROM Senior Photographer; David Coulson, Conservation Photojournalist; and Vincent Luk, Co-founder of Hello Foto Inc.

Congratulations to all entrants, and a huge thanks to our contest supporters!
