EuroNatur invites to nature photo competition / Attractive prizes may be won

Press Release 10. December 2010

Radolfzell. For the 18th time already, EuroNatur, in cooperation with Deutsche Lufthansa AG, "natur+kosmos" and NaturVision, will host the photography competition "Nature Treasures of Europe". No matter if breathtaking wilderness or hidden natural treasures: We are looking for the most beautiful and striking photos of animals, plants or landscapes in Europe. "Let your pictures reveal the diversity and fascination of Europe's nature! We are looking forward to receive any European nature photography", says Gabriel Schwaderer, director of EuroNatur.

Both amateur photographers and professionals are invited to capture their individual perspective of the multi-facetted nature in Europe in expressive pictures. Closing date is March 31, 2011.

The best pictures will be shown, among others, in an exhibition at the Lusen visitor centre of the Bavarian Forest National Park in autumn 2011 and awarded with valuable prizes. The first prize is a 7-days journey for two persons to the Sava floodplains in Croatia. The winner photos will be published among others in the magazine "natur+kosmos", in the EuroNatur magazine, on the Internet pages of the hosts and in the large-size EuroNatur wall calendar "Nature Treasures of Europe 2012". Further information about the competition can be found on our Website under Photo Competition 2011.
