The Natural History Museum Shop has unveiled its brand-new range of gifts and products inspired by this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY) competition.
From biodegradable pens to compostable inks, sustainability is at the heart of this year’s product range, with all paper coming from a FSC source and plastic packaging replaced by compostable starch where possible. The WPY Logo notebook is made from 100% recycled coffee cups while the Glasses Case & Lens cloth set are made from Recycled PET cloth.
Selected from over 49,000 entries from around the world, the winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition were revealed during an online awards ceremony live-streamed from the Natural History Museum, London on 13 October.
Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the Museum, announced Sergey Gorshkov as this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his magnificent image, The Embrace, of an Amur tigress hugging an ancient Manchurian fir in the Russian Far East.
The fifty-sixth Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition opens on Friday 16 October 2020 and will immerse you in the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. It is essential that all visitors book a ticket in advance at www.nhm.ac.uk/wpy.
