HBW - WORLD BIRD PHOTO CONTEST


First prize: A full set of HBW + a complete Swarovski Optik digiscoping kit (total value: 6,800 €).


Lynx Edicions, publisher of the Handbook of the Birds of the World and the Internet Bird Collection, together with the sponsors Avistar and Swarovski Optik, announces the launch of the Second Edition of the HBW World Bird Photo Contest, widely regarded as one of the most important bird photography competition at world level.

The contest aims to encourage and disseminate knowledge about birds, while at the same time inspiring creativity in the art of photography. To these ends, its focus is on photography that is ethical, grounded in the utmost respect for the conservation of birds and their habitats, and without unnecessary digital manipulation.

For this Second Edition, we have expanded the Contest to include a new Video Clip category with its own special prize.

The jury will select 3 winning photos, 10 honourable mentions and 5 special prizes.
