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

Deadline: 30th november 2020


Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020

We find even one of our most loyal participants of “Fotografare il Parco” among the winners of the 56th edition of
Wildlife Photographer of the Year, a “historic” photo contest dedicated to nature.

It is Lorenzo Shoubridge, whose spectacular photo of wolves was awarded the “Highly Commended” prize. The same image also won the
first prize in the “mammals” category of the Montphoto international photography contest.

We contacted him and he told us he is delighted with the prestigious result obtained, derived from his great passion for nature that found
in photography the way to realise his desire to collect evidence of the beauty of the natural world and to share it with other people.
Passion and “expertise”, as we say, for the realization of a shot dedicated to a couple of wolves, very charming animals,
depicted in their environment and in their daily life.

Our warmest congratulations to Lorenzo, and also to all the other photographers we know who, over the years, have honoured themselves
in the most important nature photography contest in the world.

Of course, we are waiting for you in “Fotografare il Parco”.

Thanks to Francesca Berardi for the translation.




The international competition “Fotografare il Parco”, that has become a traditional event for mountain photography lovers, is coming back again.
For the 14th time, photography lovers and tourists of the protected areas could confront each other with the shots dedicated to the nature of the Parks that organize the event. Landscapes, animals and plants of the Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise and de la Vanoise National Parks thus become the protagonists of the competition, supported by the patronage of Alparc (Network of Alpine Protected Areas) and Federparchi.
Given the inevitable delays following the health emergency, the deadline for participation is this year postponed to November 30, 2020. Beautiful seasons are waiting for us, from now until almost the first snow, so as you could venture on the paths of the Parks with the camera around your neck.
However, it is not only an opportunity to test your photographic skills, it is also a way to collaborate with us. Many of the images presented in the competition, fundamental to convey the beauty and the complexity of the protected areas, will be displayed – even if they will not be rewarded. They could actually be used in our communication campaigns, helping us to increase interest and attention towards mountain nature, its vulnerability and the importance of its conservation.

FOTOGRAFARE IL PARCO is coming back!


Only a few days and we will publish the rules for the new edition!

This year the situation does not allow us to carry out “physically” the traditional awards ceremony of the competition. Given the difficult moment we are facing, it is very sad but it is the right thing to do.

However, we do not want to give up the opportunity to show you, as we would have done during the ceremony, the photographers who won the prizes for this thirteenth edition.

We think that it would be the best recognition for their ability to translate into images the beauty of our Parks.

And we do believe it is important to remember that, beyond the photos you often see on our medias, there are people who love nature and photography. Two of the most beautiful passions ever.

But, for us, the awards ceremony is also something more. It is a way of showing our great appreciation for all those people who took part. Through our winners, we want to recognize all the participants the value of putting themselves out there, of having accepted to deal with many other photographers.

We want to acknowledge their great value of having paused, to observe the beauty of our protected areas, and then take a photo. It is this attention, this curiosity that rewards our commitment to preserving our extraordinary heritage.

It is also the acknowledgment of the great value that photos, whether rewarded or not, have in our work of spreading knowledge about the Parks. The photos, submitted in the competition, are a very important means to make our territories more and more appreciated and to bring other people closer to our heritage.

So, thanks once again to all those people who sent their photos, and we really hope to meet you in person for sharing our common passions. Meanwhile, we are glad to introduce you the winners of the thirteenth edition of “Fotografare il Parco”.
