Since 1991, the Bay of Somme, an internationally recognized as a major spot on the migratory routes, celebrates the return of spring and birds with the Bird and Nature Festival. After 30 years, it remains an unmissable event for nature lovers with its particularly successful guided walks, its photo contest is now one of the 10 most renowned in Europe.

Also, the Festival once again invites amateur and professional photographers to participate in this success! The objective is to use photography as a pedagogic and artistic support to promote knowledge of birds, and thus promote commitment to their conservation. Each participant will be able to present a maximum of 10 photographs. Registration fee: € 2 / photo (free for 15-17 years-old category)

The competition will lead to an exhibition presented in Le Crotoy during the 30th edition to be held from April 11 to 19, 2020

  • 6 categories including one dedicated to 15-17 year olds
