The twelve awarded pictures will not only adorn the EuroNatur calendar 2009, but will also be printed in the August edition of the magazine "nature + kosmos" and published on the webpages of EuroNatur, NaturVision and nature + kosmos.

Furthermore, these twelve and a further 25 pictures will be shown at the exhibition in Freyung organized by NaturVision, which will open on September 19 with the awards ceremony of this photography competition. A photo show will also be printed in EuroNatur's magazine 3/2008, published at the end of September.
