€ 6,500 in prizes included a Grand Prix rewarded with €1.500 

Since 1991, the Bay of Somme, an internationally recognized migratory site, has celebrated the return of spring and birds on the occasion of the Bird and Nature Festival. For over 31 years, it has remained an unmissable event for nature lovers, notably with its many outings, its photo competition is now one of the 10 most renowned in Europe.

During the last edition launched last September, 4,198 photos were submitted by 618 participants from all over the world.

The 2023 Jury was chaired by the couple of wildlife photographers, Stéphanie and David ALLEMAND, and composed of Kevin WIMEZ (naturalist photographer and animator at Eden 62), Cécile CARBONNIER (naturalist guide & nature editor) and Frédéric POLVET (Journalist for the magazine Natimages).

The 5 members met on January 12 and 13 to view the 868 images, individually pre-selected via an online platform.
