MontPhoto 2016 – International Nature Photography Contest

MontPhoto 2016 – International Nature Photography Contest

Welcome to the international contest of Nature Photography MontPhoto 2016, opened to amateurs and professionals from all around the world and organized by the MontPhoto Association.

Since 1997, our mission is to recognize the value, to promote and to broadcast the art of photography and to contribute to the environmental defense and conservationism.

The contest rewards the excellence in the photographs. We want to see innovating and inspiring images. We look for unknown places, new visions of the living beings, surprising behaviours or reinterpretations of all that is already known. Your sight documents the diversity, the beauty, the mystery and the fragility of life on our planet.

MontPhoto aims to encourage respect and care for Nature; this is the reason why pictures presented to the contest must reflect fidelity to the natural situations, respecting the originality of the scenery, the conservation of the living beings in their habitat, avoiding their suffering and the perturbation or the interferences in their behaviour.
