For the 27th time in a row we’d like to welcome you to join the MontPhoto Contest 2023 nature competition organised by the MontPhoto Association. We invite professional and non-professional photographers, of all ages, from all over the world, to join our contest again this year. We look for a glimpse that documents the diversity, the beauty, the mystery and the fragility of life on our planet.
Welcome to MontPhoto’s 2023 International Nature Photography Contest, open to amateurs and professional photographers and videographers from all over the world organised by the MontPhoto Association.
Our mission is to add value and help spread the art of photography in order to raise awareness and protect nature.
The contest rewards the photographic excellence of its participants. We seek innovative and inspiring images picturing original stories, unknown places, new perspectives, surprising behaviours or new interpretations of what is already known to us. We look for a glimpse that documents the diversity, the beauty, the mystery and the fragility of life on our planet.
MontPhoto is committed to respecting nature and that is why the work presented to this contest must show natural situations respecting the authenticity of the scenery, conserving the living beings in their habitat and by all means avoiding their suffering and the disruption or interference with their behaviour.
The MontPhoto Association is a non-profit organisation, in accordance with Spanish law, and can therefore not benefit financially from its activities. Any budgetary variation will always be used in that regard.
