The Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition takes place annually and showcases some of the most ambitious and stunning wildlife photography around. This year is it 50th anniversary.

From the website:

For 50 years, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition has championed honest and ethical wildlife photography, while pushing the boundaries of artistic freedom, technical skill and narrative excellence.

The international competition is presented by London’s Natural History Museum and the BBC—a jury picks their favorite 50 photos from 41,000 entries, which the public then vote on. The winners of the public vote will be announced next month and below is a selection of some of the incredible images from this year’s entrants.
