For the fifth time in a row we’d like to welcome you to join the Nature Photographer of the Year competition, powered by Nature Talks Photo Festival in the Netherlands. We kindly invite professional and non-professional photographers, of all ages, from all over the world, to join our contest again this year. We believe that we can show the beauty of nature worldwide by sharing the most amazing images you all make. If we learn to love nature, we’ll also protect her.


When you enter this nature photography contest you have the chance to become the Nature Photographer of the Year 2020 and win great prizes. But that’s not all, you’ll also support nature conservation. We have founded the Nature Talks Foundation (Stichting Nature Talks) to work with and support nature conservation organisations in the Netherlands and Belgium. So join today, show us your stunning images, become the Nature Photographer of the Year 2020 and also help us to take care of nature.


The award ceremony wil be during our yearly Nature Talks Photo Festival in the weekend of the 14th and 15th of November 2020 in the Netherlands. We will show all the finalists, runners up, category winners and of course the overall winner, the Nature Photographer of the Year 2020!
