Great egret, mauve stinger and stag beetle are just some of the stars of this year’s ‘Europe’s Natural Treasures’. The top twelve entries in our 2014 photography competition will appear not only in EuroNatur (issue 3, 2014) and "natur" magazine as well as on the sponsors’ websites but will also grace the pages of our 2015 EuroNatur calendar. A big thank you goes to all those who took part for their involvement.


"Winners on Tour"

The twelve prize-winning photos can be seen alongside 22 other outstanding pictures in an exhibition organised by NaturVision that opens this autumn. This will be held in the information centre Mauth in the Bayrischer Wald (Bavarian Forest) national park and will run from 12 September until 18 December 2014. The centre will also host the awards ceremony for the ‘Europe’s Natural Treasures’ competition together with the exhibition's vernissage on 12 September.

More facts and figures on the 2014 competition:

For the 21st time already, EuroNatur, in cooperation with the "natur" magazine, the NaturVision filmfestival and, in 2014 for the second time, the German utility company Gelsenwasser AG organized the major nature photo competition. Amateur photographers as well as professionals throughout Europe were invited to submit their five best shots of Europe's nature until 31 March. 421 photographers from 23 countries followed our invitation handing in more than 1.750 pictures.
