NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2023
For the eighth time in a row we’d like to welcome you to join the Nature Photographer Of The Year 2023 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 2023 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 organizations. So join today, show us your stunning images from this year, last year, or years back and become the Nature Photographer of the Year 2023 and also help us to take care of nature.
We have 13 categories, including a (free) youth category and the “Fred Hazelhoff Portfolio Award”. Feel free to submit and we hope to see your images between the finalists.
The award ceremony will be during our yearly Nature Talks Photo Festival in the weekend of the 11th and 12th of November 2023 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 2023! 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. Share your passion! Let Nature Talk!
