Alpine Convention Photo Contest 2021

All eyes on Alpine water bodies & their biodiversity

Alpine ground and surface water bodies come in all shapes and sizes: lakes and ponds, rivers and streams, marshlands and wetlands.

They are all an invaluable shared public good. They support diverse forms of life from the peaks to the plains, inside and outside the waters.

With their colours, transparencies, reflections, shades, movements, and stillness, these water sources shape the Alpine landscape and make this territory unique.


The Swiss Presidency of the Alpine Convention and the Permanent Secretariat are dedicating the 2021 Photo Contest to Alpine lakes and rivers of all sizes and forms. We are celebrating waters, from the tiniest puddles to the largest rivers, and their unmatched biodiversity. The thirteen best photos will be published in the 2022 edition of the Alpine Convention calendar.

The three best unique photographs will be awarded the following prizes:

  •             1st prize: € 300
  •             2nd prize: € 200
  •             3rd prize: € 100


Be inspired by the Alpine landscapes and let your imagination flow when you send in your contributions before 31st August 2021: see the website (Deutsch, Français, Italiano, slovenščina) for full details and find the application form at this link.
