For the fourth time, the Schleswig City Museum presents the winning images of the international contest 'GDT European Nature Photographer of the Year'. The exhibition opens on 24 March 2016 at 19.00, and continues until 22 May.
The annual contest was established in the year 2000 by the Society of German Animal Photographers (GDT), one of the largest associations of nature photographers world-wide. Its aim is to promote a respectful relationship with nature and the preservation of wildlife species and habitats with the aid of authentic and aesthetically appealing images.
With 17,300 submissions, the 2015 edition achieved a record number of entries – further emphasising the contest's prestigious reputation. Around 1,100 amateur and professional photographers from 36 countries competed for positions in nine different categories, as well as for the Fritz Pölking Award. This year's overall winner is Richard Peters from Great Britain, who captured the shadowy silhouette of a fox against an urban backdrop under a star-lit sky.
