Dear friends of Fotografare il Parco,

please be patient, just a little bit longer... the contest is coming again with fresh news and special surprises.



We made some mistakes in assigning the photographers’ name inside the 2019 calendar of Stelvio National Park, so please find our corrections here below.<--break->

For the April sheet, the exact photographer is Franco Paolinelli.
For the August sheet, the photo has been assigned to the wrong author: the correct one is Massimo Evandri.

We are very sorry, and we apologize for the inconvenience. These wonderful pictures, from the photo contest, represent a perfect opportunity to discover our protected areas and their beauty. It would not have been possible without your help, so a big thanks to all participants.

Thanks to Francesca Berardi for the translation.

Thanks to the wonderful and exciting photographs we receive every year, the South Tyrolean Office of Stelvio National Park and the Gran Paradiso National Park have created the calendars for 2019, dedicated to nature in our protected areas. For photography and nature lovers, it is a real chance to enjoy for a whole year, from month to month, the images taken by “our” photographers.


Photographers in action at Stelvio National Park! And above all, photographers hiking in the Park.

 In the last few days, Pietro Ruffini, whose photo won the latest edition of the contest “Fotografare il Parco”, came to visit the Park as our guest.

We are working to prepare the new edition of the contest. We’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible.

The secretary’s office.

The panel of the “Fotografare il Parco” international contest, organised by the Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo-Lazio-Molise, and Vanoise National Parks together with Swarovski Optik Italia, has chosen the winners of the 12th edition, among 3,000 pictures submitted by 373 authors.The panel had to take difficult decisions, given the high level of the participating pictures; here are the outcomes. 
Gianluca Damiani from Rome won the first prize with his photograph, titled “Apparizioni fugaci” (“Fleeting appearance”). The fugacity of a wolf spotting is very evocatively rendered thanks to the morning mist and the image’s peculiar composition.
“Gazè Moonlight” by Thomas Delahaye from Pralognan la Vanoise is the peculiar picture of a diurnal butterfly photographed at night-time, standing out against a sky of artificial lights, which won the second prize.
The third prize was awarded to “Tulipano di montagna” (“Mountain tulip”) by Lorenzo Shoubridge from Lido di Camaiore: the subject of the picture becomes its sole protagonist thanks to the skilful use of focus.
The best picture in the “Park landscapes” category is “Contrasti di luce” (“Light contrast”) by Elisabetta Faccin from Valdagno: the Larcher mountain hut overlooks steep walls and glacial moraines in a black-and-white contrast.
