About the exhibition
Milan hosts, once again, a beautiful collection of works resulting from one of the most important photo contests in the world: the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Now on its 57th edition, the photo exhibition can be admired at Palazzo Francesco Turati. This is the tenth edition in the Lombard capital, organised by the cultural association Radicediunopercento, under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan.
The 100 prize-winning images on display have been selected from the 57th edition of the photography competition organised by the Natural History Museum in London, which saw the participation of 50,000 shots from 96 countries, taken by professional and amateur photographers.
Winner of the prestigious title Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2021 is French biologist and underwater photographer Laurent Ballesta with ‘Creation‘.
Young Indian Vidyun R. Hebbar is the winner of the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2021 with ‘Dome home‘.
What’s on display?
The images portray rare animals in their habitat, unusual behaviour and landscapes, and offer powerful examples on the beauty of nature but also its fragility to be defended and preserved.
In addition to the two top awards Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2021 and Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2021, the exhibition shows all the winning and finalist images divided into categories. These include Amphibians and reptiles, Birds, Invertebrates, Mammals, Animals in their environment, The Art of Nature, Oceans, Plants and fungi, The underwater world, Urban nature, Animal portraits, Wetlands and a section dedicated to young people (photographers up to 10 years old, 11 to 14 years old and 15 to 17 years old).
Other important sections are the documentary categories Wildlife Photographr Portfolio Award, Wildlife Photojournalism and Wildlife Photojournalist Story Award and Rising Star Portfolio Award.
