Radolfzell. The subject of the winning photo in this year’s "Europe’s Natural Treasures 2020" photo competition was the tussle between two cormorants over a tasty fish. It was taken in Hungary earlier this year by London-based photographer Tony Zhang. More than 1.100 photographers, amateur and professional, from 43 different countries took part in our prestigious photo competition this year.  

“These images provide impressive proof of the fantastic natural treasures we have on our continent. We must do everything we can to preserve Europe’s biodiversity so that future generations will also have the opportunity to marvel anew at the wonders and riches of nature,” says Gabriel Schwaderer, head of EuroNatur and one of the competition judges.

This is the 27th time the EuroNatur nature foundation – together with natur magazine, Gelsenwasser AG and Constance’s specialist photography shop LichtBlick – has run the Europe’s Natural Treasures competition. Entries to the competition remain as high as ever this year.
