Campaigners were outraged when the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition took sponsorship money from Shell. Protests and pleas for entries that highlighted the company’s less-than-glowing impact on the environment have now been followed by direct action: activists linked to last summer’s demonstration at Drax power station have smeared an oil-like black liquid across the photos on display at the Natural History Museum. The damage is only to the glass covering the photos. The campaigners say: “This is not an attack on the work of the photographers. Shell does not deserve to have its name associated with their beautiful images.”
