2012 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Winners Announced

  • Posted 72 months Ago

A few days ago the winners of the 2012 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest, which is run by the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide, were announced. In total 48,000 images were submitted from 98 different countries to a panel of judges, who then had the strenuous task of whittling these down to a final 100 for the exhibition. Paul Nicklen was also picked as the ultimate winner (top image) for his depiction of penguins underwater. The exhibition is on now at the Natural History Museum in London and will be running through to March 2013.
