The Natural History Museum in London curates the exhibition, which has been running for 53 years, and premiered the 100 winning images in October last year.

Images record the beauty and drama of the natural world. Almost 50,000 entries were amassed, including photographs from amateurs, professionals and young people from 92 countries.

Head of heritage services Dr Jason Monaghan said the museum was keen to get in early because the exhibition has always proved popular with islanders. ‘We’ve had the exhibition almost every year since the Millennium, it’s a very popular start to the year and it’s great for families,’ he said.

The museum reopens today from 10am to 4pm. Normal admission rates apply, but Discovery Pass holder and accompanying children are admitted free.
