Capture the emotions
that nature gives you


in the three Italian National Parks of Stelvio,

Gran Paradiso and Abruzzo Lazio and Molise

and in the French National Park de la Vanoise

Deadline: 30th November 2023





Something new for its 17th edition: the creation of a social profile and the People's choice
The “Fotografare il Parco” contest, 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, is now in its 17th edition.
After the success of the previous editions – over 3,500 photographs were taken in the last one – the contest confirms its four categories: The Park Landscapes, The Park Wildlife, The Park Microcosmos and Natural Details, and The Park Plant World. For the overall and category winners there are cash prizes, stays in the four protected areas, and subscriptions to "La Rivista della Natura”, the contest’s media partner. Two special prizes are also up for grabs: one will be awarded to the image considered to be the most representative of the interaction between man and nature, while a second will be awarded to the photograph that best represents, interprets, and highlights the ecological-environmental crises marking our current historical period.



Once again, this year Geo, the afternoon programme broadcast on the Italian television channel RAI3, dedicated a report to the contest.

In yesterday’s episode, broadcast on 5 April, Emanuele Biggi interviewed Francesco Tomasinelli, journalist, science communicator, and member of the Fotografare il Parco jury.



Grand finale, on Saturday 25 March, of the 16th edition of the contest.

In the impressive setting of the Fort Bard, in the presence of the President and the Director of the Fort, as well as many local administrators, and representatives of the Stelvio, Gran Paradiso, Abruzzo Lazio e Molise and Vanoise, prizes were awarded to the authors of the overall and category-winning photographs, and the mentioned images.
