Fotografare il Parco. Edition 2022: Nature in images


The international contest “Fotografare il Parco” is back, an event organised by the Italian National Parks of Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise and the French Parc national de la Vanoise, with the patronage of Alparc (the Alpine Network of Protected Areas) and Federparchi.


On Friday 13 May, Geo, the famous Italian Rai 3 nature programme, broadcasted a report on the Contest.  The presenter, Emanuele Biggi, interviewed Stanislao Basileo, winner of the 15th edition, as well as Loredana Dresti, who represents the entire organising staff.

For us, this is further recognition of the high aesthetic and communicative value achieved, thanks to the cooperation between the promoting protected areas.

Nevertheless, the main credit goes to the skill of the participants and their extraordinary ability to describe the landscapes and natural elements of our protected areas.



In the wonderful setting of the Auditorium Parco della Musica “Ennio Morricone” in Rome, on Sunday 24 April, the prize-giving ceremony was held, aimed at awarding the authors of the absolute and category winning-photographs, as well as the images considered worthy of mention during the 15th edition of the contest “Fotografare il Parco”.

The ceremony was part of the rich calendar of events organised for celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Gran Paradiso National Park and the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, co-organisers of the contest together with Stelvio and de la Vanoise National Parks.


The award ceremony of the fifteenth edition will take place on Sunday the 24 of April at 10 am at Foyer of Auditorium Parco della Musica “Ennio Morricone”, Via De Coubertin 30, Rome.

The success of the initiative is confirmed by its numbers:almost 3,500 images have taken part in the 2021 selection
The 15th edition of the international contest "Fotografare il Parco", organised by the National Parks of Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, and de la Vanoise, with the patronage of Alparc, Federparchi, and the participation of the media partner La Rivista della Natura, has come to an end.
The great participation of photography enthusiasts and the high technical, artistic, and naturalistic value of the images presented, confirmed the important role that "Fotografare il Parco" has taken on in the panorama of photography contests.
The three absolute winners well represent the different approaches and "disciplines" of nature photography.
First place went to the highly evocative image of an ibex facing the force of a storm by Stanislao Basileo; second place was taken by Marco Antonini's photo of the "dance of life" of a couple of demoiselle cranes in the delicate moment of egg laying. Third place went to the dramatic black and white, enhanced by the range of chiaroscuros, taken by Véronique Andre's photo showing the effects of a summer snowfall on the steep faces of the Dent Parrachée in the Vanoise massif.
The categories dedicated to the individual protected areas saw the success of Maurizio Trifilidis' "Autumn on Lake Barrea" (for the Abruzzo, Lazio, and Molise National Park), the "Fairy tale of a night – Leonessa Bivouac" by Giacomo Baffetti (Gran Paradiso National Park), the "Dosegù at sunset " by Matteo Berbenni (Stelvio National Park) and the photo "Les Gliéres - Pralognan-la-Vanoise" by Jacky Deleurence (Parc National de la Vanoise).



The jury of the 15th edition of the international photo contest “Fotografare il Parco” met yesterday in videoconference.

Even the edition 2021 had had a massive participation: almost 3,500 photographs had entered the contest.



We are pleased to inform you that the jury meeting will take place on February, 15th. The winning photographs will be announced after the eventually technical check.
