The National History Museum of London organises Wildlife Photographer of the year annually which brings out the rare glimpses of the rare species. The winner of 2017 is photojournalist Brent Stirton who grabbed the award for his "Memorial to a Species" which is an image of recently shot and de-horned black rhino in South Africa's Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve. These rhinos are now endangered species due to poaching and trading of rhino horns. The tragic scene has a majestic touch in its sculptural power which earned the prestigious award to Brent Stirton, according to competition Judge Rox Kidman Cox.
There were more than 50000 entries submitted for the contest from across 92 countries around the world. A preview of the images was released in September and the final results were announced on 17th October. The Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 goes to Daniel Nelson of Netherlands. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year series consists of a major exhibition at the Museum and a worldwide tour. The winning images appear on this website and leading publications worldwide.Wildlife photographer award by jaime Wildlife photographer award by theo
