Duratran prints produced for Veolia Environnment Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012

18 October 2012
Metro have been thrilled once again to be involved in producing Duratrans for the The Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer Award 2012 exhibition. The awards are always much anticipated and the subsequent exhibition extremely popular, this year has been no exception with 48,000 entries from 98 countries, including amateur and professional photographers alike.

Metro have been producing prints for this competition for many years we are delighted to have printed all hundred large format Duratrans prints for the Natural History Museum as well as the Canadian and Swiss shows.  The Duratrans prints are lit from behind in lightboxes, making a truly exceptional display which brings an outstanding cinematic dimension to these dramatic wildlife stills.

The following competition winners were revealed at a thrilling awards evening at the Natural History Museum last night:

Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012 winner is Paul Nicklen from Canada for his sunlit image of Emperor penguins in Ross Sea, Antarctica.
