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 organizations like Photographer Against Wildlife Crime. 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.

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.
