The Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is one of the most prestigious photography contests of its kind in the world. Held since 1964 under the auspices of the BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Natural History Museum in London, every year the competition concludes with an exhibition that travels to dozens of countries.
The 80 best photographs from last year's competition are on display at the BWA gallery in the southern city of Bielsko-Biała. For the second year in a row, the award-winning photographs include three taken by Polish photographers. This year, they are Mariusz Oszustowicz (third prize, In Praise of Plants category), Jacek Kwiatkowski (third prize, 15- to 17-year-olds category) and Michał Budzyński (highly commended, 15- to 17-year-olds category).
Budzyński, who lives in Buczkowice near Bielsko-Biała, is a high school student and this is his third win in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. This time, he was highly commended for a photograph entitled Ice-Bound (pictured above) that he took near a reservoir in the beautiful Wapienica River Valley, in the northern part of Silesia Beskid mountain range. The black-and-white photograph and 20 other pictures he took of Polish wildlife are on show in a small exhibition that accompanies the best works entered for Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009.
