Foundation of NaturArt
In 1989, right after the regime change, the Association of Hungarian Nature Photographers, NaturArt was founded.
The founders believed – and the association’s current members also share this idea – that there is a great need for a nature photographer association, which colligates, nurses and maintains the traditions of the Hungarian nature photography, gives opportunities to ambitions and which sets the course in the ethical nature photography.
NaturArt is an open organization, anyone can join who deserves the right with his or her photos.
Our current membership of around 70 members contain the most successful nature photographers in Hungary.
We have been organizing for the 26th time the biggest local nature photography contest, the Nature Photographer of the Year competiotion.
We were the first in the World to introduce the totally transparent jury process, which is open and live on the Internet, which was followed from 15 countries this year.
The news of the award ceremony in November is always on front page in the media, this year we reached about 3 million people.
