International Photo Contest

 

 

Capture the emotions
that nature gives you

 

in the three Italian National Parks of Stelvio,

Gran Paradiso and Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise

and in the French National Park de la Vanoise
 

 

 

THE WINNERS OF THE 13TH EDITION HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED

We won it all for the 13th time. These are the editions of the international contest “Fotografare il Parco”, organized by Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo-Lazio-Molise and de la Vanoise National Parks with the support of Alparc (Alpine Network of the Protected Areas) and Federparchi, along with the participation of La Rivista della Natura as media partner.
 
The jury, made up of the winner of the 12th edition, well-known naturalist photographers and representatives of the Park, selected the winning images of this latest edition from the 3,200 photographs presented by nearly 450 authors.
 
Once again, the quality level in recent years has grown. Not only technical quality, however. In this edition, many photographs actually showed a narrative vision of nature that corresponds to the ideas of modern photograph and that was particularly appreciated by the jury.
 
These are the results of our 13th edition.
 
The rank has seen a female dominance. The winner was the photograph “Tempo d’amore” by Elisa Confortini, in which the author caught the “embrace” between two stag beetles in the cool shade of a forest. Paolo Taranto came second. The protagonist of the photo is, once again, a small animal: a bat asleep in its refuge, caught in the photo “A riposo tra le radici. Ferro di cavallo minore”. The third place was assigned to an image of a landscape of great depth, where ice and light are the protagonists. In “Frozen kingdom”, the author Marco Barone portrayed the strange geometries of air bubbles trapped in the ice of Lake Moncenisio, in the Vanoise National Park and the rays of a distant sun.
 
Marco Barone was also the winner for the “Park Landscape” category. His photo, “Foggy lands”, confirms his passion for Lake Moncenisio, here portrayed in a scenario seeming to be part of another world.

EVALUATION MEETING - 2

   


Once again, the jury of the thirteenth edition of the international photo contest "Fotografare il Parco" which met yesterday in Milan had to face a very hard work. Its members - nature photographers and representatives of the protected areas - had to judge a huge amount of images. Not only quantity, though: the quality level of the photos presented in the competition is always growing.
 
The winners will be announced after the holiday break, to allow any necessary technical check.
