The Winning Photos From The GDP Nature Photographer Of The Year 2020 Have Been Announced And They’re Beautiful


The German Society for Nature Photography have just announced the winners of the Nature Photographer of the Year 2020 contest, and the shots are absolutely beautiful.

“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, voting was not carried out during the annual general meeting but was completed online for the first time ever in GDT’s history with great participation by its members,” the organization told Bored Panda in a statement.

The photographers competed in 7 categories: Birds, Mammals, Other Animals, Plants and Fungi, Landscapes, Nature’s Studio, and the special category — Water.

This year, the overall winner is Peter Lindel from Dortmund, Germany, with his photo of a European hare. Lindel is a passionate photographer, focusing on local as well as African fauna. The winning image belongs to a series taken in the north of Dortmund. “Compared to many international nature photography hotspots, this region has little to offer,” GDT said. “[But] Peter Lindel [invested] a lot of time and blood, sweat, and tears working on this project on his doorstep. In these times, as everyone is urged to stay home, the generally classic subject of a hare gains special significance. It is also a beautiful statement for long-term exploration of a single species and region.”

The overall winner as well as category winners and runners-up received generous prizes by AC-Foto, GDT’s partner for many years. The overall winner also received an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III 12-40mm kit from the organization’s premium partner, Olympus Europe.
