Wildlife Photographer of the Year has announced the 2024 finalists for the People’s Choice award. Yes, this means that you get to vote for your favorite images. The selection is captivating, and you’ll have a difficult task, just like the contest jury.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London. Last month, they announced the 2023 photo contest winners. I don’t know about you, but the winning image blew my mind.

You’ll find plenty of different images among the finalists for the People’s Choice awards. Natural History Museum and an international judging panel chose the finalists from 49,957 entries from 95 countries. Some photos will bring you to the verge of tears, but there are also adorable, humorous ones. It’s an emotional rollercoaster. What’s more, you already know one from the highly commended photos of the 2023 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

“Wildlife Photographer of the Year’s People’s Choice Award always offers an astounding selection of images, and this year is no different,” says Dr. Douglas Gurr, Director of the Natural History Museum. “We invite the public to join the jury and vote for their favourite; whether breathtaking beauty or a powerful story, it’s sure to be a difficult decision!”

How to vote

There are two ways to cast your vote. You can vote for the People’s Choice Award winner on WPOTY’s website, or in the flagship Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. The exhibition will take place at the Natural History Museum in London. Voting closes on January 31, 2024.

WPOTY will announce the winner and top four images in February 2024. They will be shared online, joining the winners of the fifty-ninth competition announced earlier this year. The People’s Choice Award images will also be showcased in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in South Kensington until the show closes on Sunday, June 30, 2024.
