The contest "Magical Nature" is hosted by Association of Slovenian Nature Photographers (ZNFS). The contest is open to amateur as well as professional photographers from around the world. One of the aims of the contest is, to receive stunning photographs of the nature, to show to the people biodiversity, they have never seen before. Of course, photographs from this exhibition do not show the whole volume of biodiversity, fare from it. But they reveal some of the extremely rarely seen species, natural moments and phenomenon. And this exceptionality is the underlying theme of all selected photographs. Human – nature relationship is part of biodiversity too. It is presented with photographs from »Man and Nature« category. Clearly, sometimes also shockingly, they show us the whole extent of our connection to the nature.
More than 4300 photographs from 264 authors and 46 countries arrived to the contest. The best photographer, according to a four-member jury, received a title »Nature Photographer of the Year 2018« and the best Slovenian photographer a title »Slovenian Nature Photographer of the Year 2018«.
The Association was founded on April, 2017 in Ljubljana, Slovenia where it also has its seat.
The aims and purpose of the association is to promote and popularise the author's nature photography and to create a positive attitude towards nature with photographs of nature in society.
By organizing photographic competitions, exhibitions, projections, and lectures among photographers, to stimulate the interest and popularisation of nature photography, while at the same time enabling education for members of the association as well as for the wider community.
Since January 2018 the Association is member of International Federation of Wildlive Photography.
