The annual exhibition of award-winning photographs of our planet returns later this year, and due to shorter opening hours, they’re putting tickets on sale from today to give people a chance to book early.
This is the 56th year of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
Winning images are selected for their creativity, originality, and technical excellence, and despite the lockdown, this year’s competition attracted almost 50,000 entries from across the world.
Some of the shortlisted photographs have been released as a teaser.

The winners will be announced on 13th October, and the exhibition will then open to the public on 16th October.
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
