Nordic Nature Photo Contest 2014

Just returned from Norway after attending the first Norwegian Nature Photo Festival in the city of Ski, not far from Oslo. Last Thursday I attended the prize ceremony at this years Nordic Nature Photo Contest! NNPC. Two of my images were successful this year, I got the third place in the mammals category and a highly commended image in the Creative Nature Image category, for the third year in a row!.

About the competition
The vision behind the Natur&Foto Magazine is to promote Nordic nature photography and quality images of nature. The Natur&Foto Magazine has provided nature photographers with a showcase for their images and recently a new Nordic Nature Photo Competition saw the light of the day.

With its fantastic nature, unique light, magnificent wildlife and plant life, Nordic nature is in a class of its own and we want to promote this via the Nordic Nature Photo Contest, which is international and open to everyone. Except for the category Travel Photo, all images must be shot within in the last three years in one of the Nordic countries, Norway (Spitsbergen), Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, the Faroe Islands or Greenland.

Aim: Our aim with this contest is to increase the number of people fond of the fantastic nature surrounding us through photographs, exhibitions, books and the media.

Our motto is: “One protects the things one loves”
