Welcome to the international contest of Nature Photography MontPhoto 2017, opened to amateurs and professionals all around the world, organized by the MontPhoto Association.
Since 1997, our mission is to recognize the value, to promote and broadcast the art of photography and to contribute to the environmental defence, the conservationism and the environmentalism.
The contest rewards the excellence in the photographs. We want to see innovating and inspiring images. We look for unknown places, new visions of the live beings, surprising behaviours or reinterpretations of all that is already known. Your sight Documents the diversity, the beauty, the mystery and the fragility of life in our planet.
MontPhoto bets for respect towards Nature; this is the reason why the images presented to the contest must reflect with fidelity the natural nature situations, respecting the originality of the scenery, the conservation of the live beings in their habitat, avoiding their suffering, the perturbation or the interferences in their behaviour.
