World Nature Photography Awards 2020

prize money of $1000


The mission of the World Nature Photography Awards is to celebrate the world’s best nature photographers whilst showcasing nature’s beauty to a wider audience. But at their heart, lies a desire to help climate change organisations, with all profit from entry fee income being donated to the world’s leading charities working in this area.

We believe in the power of photography to put a spotlight on the majesty and wonder of the natural world around us, reminding us to take action now to secure a better tomorrow for us all.

We award winning titles in 13 categories and one photographer takes home the overall title of World Nature Photographer of the Year and prize money of $1000.


Bronze, silver and gold titles in each category. One overall winner gains the title of World Nature Photographer of the Year and a cash prize of $1000.
