International photo competition "European Treasures of Nature 2013" has started


Press release, 30th November 2012

Radolfzell. One of Europe’s most renowned nature photo competitions is celebrating its anniversary. Marking the 20th year of the annual event, nature heritage foundation EuroNatur, in cooperation with „natur“ magazine and NaturVision film festival, is launching the nature photo competition "European Treasures of Nature 2013". „We invite both amateur and professional photographers to send us their most impressive pictures celebrating the diversity of Europe's nature", says Gabriel Schwaderer, executive director of EuroNatur.

Be it Black-necked Grebes in a sea of buttercups, mushrooms sporting a “flamboyant hairstyle” or colourful autumn forests veiled in a fine waft of mist - we are looking forward to receiving the most beautiful and spectacular photos of animals, plants or landscapes in Europe.

The most striking pictures will be judged by an expert jury. The best photos will be showcased in an exhibition at the Lusen visitor centre of the Bavarian Forest National Park in autumn 2013 and awarded with valuable prizes. The first prize is a Zeiss Mono telescope 20x60 S Mono.  Furthermore, the prize winning photos will go on to be published in the EuroNatur picture calendar "European Treasures of Nature 2014" as well in Euronatur magazine, "natur” magazine, and on the organisers' websites.

The closing date of the competition is on 31 March 2013. Further information about the nature photo competition
