The countdown to find the planet’s best photographs is now on, as the competition for the 2013 Wildlife Photographer of the Year closes for entries on 25 February.  Amateur and professional photographers alike can submit images into18 categories, with three categories specifically for those aged 17 and under. To be in with a chance of seizing one of the coveted titles and a share in the £30,000 prize pot, photographers should submit imagery that shows creativity, artistry and technical excellence to breath-taking effect.

Now in its 49th year, the annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition has showcased some truly iconic photos and is regarded as the most prestigious wildlife photography contest in the world, receiving over 48,000 entries from photographers across 98 countries.

Photographers looking for inspiration and visitors who want to be amazed by the world’s best images can check out this year’s stunning collection of imagery at the exhibition which is closing at the Natural History Museum in London on 3 March, whilst continuing its global and UK tour. 2012 overall winner Paul Nicklen’s Bubble-jetting emperors is a beautiful display of underwater chaos, as emperor penguins hurtle towards the surface.  In sharp contrast, yet equally powerful, is Brent Stirton’s Deadly medicine, chilling in its vivid depiction of the cruel rhino horn trade.

Teenager Owen Hearn triumphed as overall young winner for his distinctive image Flight paths. Featuring a resplendent red kite against an oncoming plane, it was taken on his grandparents’ Bedfordshire farm.
