If for 33 years, the Festival remains an unmissable event for nature lovers, the 2 competitions it organizes have allowed it to obtain international recognition: The Photo Competition (only dedicated to the bird) is one of the 10 most renowned in Europe, and the documentaries received as part of the Film Competition come from 47 countries.
Photos and films made by almost as many amateurs as professionals, who express image by image, their personal vision of a wild, universal but also fragile nature.
Every year, as part of the french Bird and Nature Festival, an international photo competition dedicated to wildbirds is organized. 6 categories including one dedicated to 15-17 year olds.
