About this book

This is a collection of the most beautiful and memorable pictures taken over the 50-year history of what is now the world's most prestigious wildlife photography competition. The pictures also tell the story of how the competition has marked the development of nature photography over the past half century, how it has influenced it, and how the very best images should be valued as art of a high order.

The photographs are grouped around subjects related to the competition and photography in general, from the pioneers of wildlife photography, to the use of low light, aerial shots, close-up imagery, underwater photography and more. The pictures are organised chronologically within these groups and each picture caption puts the photograph in context, bringing out its importance, as well as telling the relevant story. All those who have viewed this compelling exhibition since its inception 50 years ago, will marvel at this astounding volume.

Media reviews

"Great pictures of nature have one thing in common – they are unforgettable. They can also be a profound source of beauty, wonder and joy. This is a collection of work from the competition that, over the past half century, has become an international showcase for the very best wildlife photography – images that have the power to affect how we feel about the natural world and therefore how we treat it. It's a collection that will make you think."
– Sir David Attenborough
