Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at Sewerby Hall and Gardens postponed until 2022

The team at Sewerby Hall and Gardens have announced that the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition on loan from the Natural History Museum, which was rescheduled for Spring 2021, has been postponed again, and will now be on view in 2022.

The exhibition is certain to be very popular when it does open, and at the moment, the logistics of the house mean it would not be possible to accommodate the numbers of people who will be wanting to visit.

The new dates for the exhibition are Saturday, 7 May 2022 until Sunday, 17 July, 2022.

Curator Janice Smith said : “Of course it is disappointing and frustrating that we are having to postpone the exhibition again, but we want to be sure that we can do this major exhibition justice when it does visit us, and of course we want as many people as possible to be able to come.

“We will now host the latest exhibition in 2022, for which the winning entries will be announced later this year. We are grateful to the Natural History Museum for working with us on this further change of dates.

“We are hugely looking forward to finally being able to host this prestigious exhibition at Sewerby Hall and Gardens next year.”

The exhibition features 100 awe-inspiring images, featuring exceptional images which capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. Using photography's unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years. Launching in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives over 49,000 entries from all over the world, highlighting its enduring appeal.
