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”.

The award ceremony for the thirteenth edition of Fotografare il Parco, scheduled on March 7 in Milan, has been postponed to another date.
We will inform you about the new date of the event as soon as possible.

Bormio, Torino, Pescasseroli, Chambéry, 25th Februar 2020


The award ceremony of the thirteenth edition will take place on Saturday the 7 of March at 11 am at Belvedere “Enzo Jannacci”– Palazzo Pirelli di Regione Lombardia, Via Fabio Filzi 22, Milan.
Bormio, Torino, Pescasseroli, Chambéry, 11th February 2020


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.

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.
