Radolfzell. This year is a big anniversary for one of Europe's most renowned nature photography competitions: It is the 25th time that EuroNatur, the magazine "natur", the NaturVision Filmfestival and Gelsenwasser AG are inviting all amateur and professional photographers to embark on a photographic journey of discovery.

A specialist jury will select the most striking images of Europe's animals, plants and landscapes. The winning photos will grace the large-format EuroNatur wall calendar and be awarded money prizes. They will also be published in the EuroNatur magazine, in the publication "natur" as well as on the websites of the organisers. The best photos will be included in the exhibition "The Fascination of Nature", which will take place in the autumn of 2018 at the information centre of the Bayrischer Wald National Park.

Deadline for entries is 31st March 2018. More details about the competition can be found here.

Brown Bear

Seen as a predator with a sweet tooth, a much loved model for soft toys yet outlawed and hunted down as a blood-thirsty beast: the brown bear.


Lithe and skillful, the lynx is a shy, lone hunter. If it is to survive in Europe and if the population is to be undisturbed enough to increase in number, intensive protection measures will be required.


Mankind's relationship to the wolf is ambivalent – on the one hand the animal is admired as a skilled and untiring hunter but also ill-famed as Isengrim the bloodthirsty and persecuted.

Migratory birds

Always to be where living conditions are best: this is a luxury that only those with wings can afford.

Green Belt

Across 12 500 kilometres (over 7700 miles) the Green Belt stretches along the one-time Iron Curtain forming a corridor of habitats for an exceptional diversity of species.

Rivers in Europe

Where in Germany can you still find the original wild rivers? You'll need a magnifying glass. But in the Balkans such utopias still exist on a large scale, even today.
