Stunning wildlife exhibition returning to Beverley
The hugely popular Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition – developed and produced by the Natural History Museum – will be back in Beverley in July.
Beverley Art Gallery in the Treasure House will host the 2018 exhibition from Saturday, July 14 to Saturday, September 8. During the exhibition’s run, the Treasure House will also be open on Sundays .
The free exhibition reflects the 53rd year of the competition, which welcomes entries from professional and amateur photographers in three age groups. The international judging panel of respected wildlife experts reviewed almost 50,000 entries from 92 countries and visitors will be able to see 100 acclaimed photographs from all the competition categories, featuring a huge variety of inspiring images.
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said: “The 2017 touring exhibition brought record-breaking numbers of people to The Treasure House – and to Beverley as a whole – and I have no doubt that the new exhibition will prove just as popular.”
During the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, the Treasure House will also be hosting “Snakes….a slither into a secretive life”, using taxidermy, skeletal mounts and award winning photography to delve into the captivating lives of snakes.
