The world on display
The exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, is at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour, Sydney, until 11 October 2020.
The exhibition features 100 exceptional award-winning images which capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. While inspiring curiosity and wonder, the images also remind us of the fragility of our planet and our responsibility to protect it.
Dr Tim Littlewood, Director of Science at the Natural History Museum and member of the competition’s judging panel, says, ‘For more than fifty years this competition has attracted the world’s very best photographers, naturalists and young photographers, but there has never been a more important time for audiences all over the world to experience their work in our inspiring and impactful exhibition. Photography has a unique ability to spark conversation, debate and even action. We hope this year’s exhibition will empower people to think differently about our planet and our critical role in its future.’
