Czech Nature Photo 2018

18. 1. - 18. 2. 2018

The multi-genre Czech Photo Centre has organizing the prestigious Czech Press Photo journalism contest for over twenty years, which brings together the best Czech and Slovak photographers who bring visual testimony of events across the globe. We have also set up a “sister contest” – the new Czech Nature Photo contest, through which we want to showcase nature and wildlife from around the globe as seen by our own photographers.

Go to the contest application.

The pilot year took place in 2017 and it demonstrated great results: an expert judging panel selected the best wildlife photographs from domestic authors from 3 140 submitted photographs. 467 wildlife and nature photographers took part in the Czech Nature Photo contest. Just the submitted photographs alone make it clear that the Czech Republic is a country where wildlife and nature photography holds a strong position. It is no accident that many domestic authors also take wildlife and nature shots for a large number of international agencies and publishers. Nominated and other photographs could be viewed over the course of the summer in Prague Zoo and within the Czech Photo Centre gallery, where visitors were also able to choose the picture they liked the most. The exhibition attracted large visitor numbers.
