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






Once again, this year Geo, the afternoon programme broadcast on the Italian television channel RAI3, dedicated a report to the contest.

In yesterday’s episode, broadcast on 5 April, Emanuele Biggi interviewed Francesco Tomasinelli, journalist, science communicator, and member of the Fotografare il Parco jury.



Grand finale, on Saturday 25 March, of the 16th edition of the contest.

In the impressive setting of the Fort Bard, in the presence of the President and the Director of the Fort, as well as many local administrators, and representatives of the Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo Lazio e Molise and Vanoise, prizes were awarded to the authors of the overall and category-winning photographs, and the mentioned images.


The winning photographs on display at the Fort Stables from 26 March to 26 April 2023
The Stables of the Fort Bard (AO) will display, from 26 March to 26 April 2023, the winning and mentioned photographs of the 16th edition of the international nature photography contest “Fotografare il Parco”, organized by Gran Paradiso, Stelvio, Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise Italian National Parks, and de la Vanoise French National Park, with the patronage of Alparc, Federparchi and the participation of the media partner “La Rivista della Natura”.
The four protected areas are divided by hundreds of kilometres, but they are together in the aim of preserving a heritage of biodiversity that is unique for its beauty and richness. They thus want to continue the cultural path for nature images that they have undertaken so far.
The images on display show the landscapes and inhabitants that you can meet within the four protected areas: the chamois struggling for survival in the mountains, the slow flow of night clouds above the rocky mountains, the delicate opening of buds in the forest at the end of winter. There is more: wide views, animals, and plants.
The images will allow you to witness instants of life in our mountains: moments that, without the attentive gaze and quick reflexes of the photographers, could be missed. For a moment, the world of nature opens to our eyes with all its beauty.
