See the World’s Best Wildlife Photography

The 2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is a collection of images from the world’s largest and most prestigious wildlife photography competition. The Detroit Zoo’s Ford Education Center has been selected for the exhibition’s U.S. debut for the 12th year in a row.

This year’s exhibition features winners from the 2017 competition – 100 images dramatically displayed as illuminated large-format color transparencies. The shots were chosen from close to 50,000 photographers from 92 countries.

“Year after year, the awe-inspiring exhibition showcases the most incredible images of wildlife from around the globe as well as the skill and perfect timing of the photographers,” says Ron Kagan, executive director and CEO for the Detroit Zoological Society.

Now in its 53rd year, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London.
