As the British Wildlife Photography Awards is celebrating its 10th anniversary, a retrospective traveling outdoor exhibition has been set up. For the first time, the exhibition will feature all the overall winners, selected category winners, and highly commended images.

For the past decade, the British Wildlife Photography Awards has showcased the most stunning work from talented photographers across the United Kingdom. "This is a unique legacy captured by thousands of dedicated and talented photographers during the last decade, which has reached millions each year through exceptional media coverage," the official web page for the awards reads.

The exhibition opened on September 19 and is currently running until March 2021 as an inventive outdoor show and experience in the Astley Hall park in Chorley, Lancashire. "Visitors can experience these images in a way which has not been done before and enjoy the original perspective of finding an underwater world in the woods and get up close and personal with all creatures great and small within the walled garden," the British Wildlife Photography Awards page reads.

In addition to the outdoor exhibition, an indoor one will also be held from November 10, 2020, at Nature in Art near Gloucester. The future venues for the upcoming exhibitions will be announced once they're confirmed.

Due to the global pandemic, unfortunately, the competition won't be held for the year 2020. "We have now chosen to defer the next competition to 2021, to ensure the best possible competition is run when it is safe and practical to do so. Meanwhile, we are undertaking the retrospective show to mark ten years of the BWPA—and to look forward to many more," the organizers of the competition explain.

Bumble bees are still cute. Just don't look at them magnified a hundred times.

"We are confident that this not only provides a new and exciting way to stage the exhibition; but also makes it a COVID-19-secure event, in the open air and socially distanced," Councillor Peter Wilson said about the exhibition in Chorley. "The exhibition is completely free to all visitors so I encourage everyone to come and check it out; check out Chorley!"
