International Wildbird Photo Contest

logo festival vertical.jpg (160 KB)Within the framework of the 21st Bird and Nature Festival, that will be held from April 16 to 25, 2011, an international wildbird photo competition is organized. This competition is open to everybody, amateur and professional photographers, whatever his/her age or nationality.

There are 5 categories :

A : Bird in flight : Images that reflect the beauty of flight, the power and the grace of bird in mid-air, soaring, taking off or landing.
B : Bird in landscape : Pleasing shots of birds within the beauty of environment. The landscape is as important a part of the picture as the bird itself.
C : Bird behavior : Images must capture a memorable, unusual or interesting behavior. Judges will look for images with an aesthetic appeal, a unique interest value and dramatic action.
D : Bird and color : The photo has to put forward the bird by using games of colors (monochromaticity..) – the judges will be looking for artistic vision and true originality. Let your imagination run wild. Colors must be natural and not obtained by means of a photo-editing software.
E: Bird portrait: Portraits should capture the unique character or spirit of the bird, give an emotion and convey a sense of intimacy and immediacy.
