Ready for a new round: The photo competition “European Treasures of Nature” starts off again! For the 22 nd time already, EuroNatur, in cooperation with the magazin "natur", the NaturVision filmfestival and Gelsenwasser AG, arranges the major nature photo competition.
Oystercatchers on patrol, a brilliant, many-tinted microcosm and a curtain of birds: the diversity of Europe's nature offers countless treasures to be discovered. We invite you to set off hunting for photos and to capture magic moments and stunning experiences in nature.
It's worth the effort: you stand a chance to win attractive prizes. The best pictures will be shown in the exhibition “Faszination Natur” (Fascination Nature) at the information centre Mauth of the Bavarian Forest National Park in autumn 2015. The winner photos will be published among others in EuroNatur magazine, in "natur" magazine, on the Internet pages of the hosts and in the large-size wall calendar "European Treasures of Nature 2016".
