Nature Photographer Of The Year 2021

 

For the sixt 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 2021 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 2021 and also help us to take care of nature.

 

The award ceremony wil be during our online Nature Talks Photo Festival in the weekend of the 13th and 14th of November 2021 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 2021! The finalists and winning images will also be in a photo exhibition on the festival before this exhibition will be traveling through the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
