p12A Fővárosi Állat- és Növénykert, valamint a Süni és Vadon magazin szerkesztősége fotópályázatot hirdet az Európai Állatkertek Szövetsége „Piszkos 12, azaz a Ragadozók Éve” természetvédelmi kampányához csatlakozóan, gyerekek és felnőttek számára.

2009-ben az Európai Állatkertek, így a Fővárosi Állat- és Növénykert is, 12 veszélyeztetett vagy kihalóban lévő, Európában honos ragadozó emlős védelméért száll síkra. Mivel Európa legnagyobb része sűrűn lakott, a természetes élőhelyek, főleg a háborítatlan, sűrű erdők egyre inkább feldarabolódnak, szennyeződnek, fogyatkoznak. Ez rákényszeríti a vadonélő állatokat, így a ragadozó emlősöket, pl. farkasokat, barnamedvéket, sakálokat arra, hogy egyre inkább behatoljanak az emberi települések környezetébe. Ez sok ember ellenszenvét váltja ki, ami a nagytestű ragadozók esetében párosul még az évszázados jogtalan előítéletekkel, félelmekkel. Pedig a ragadozók azzal, hogy elragadják a beteg és gyenge állatokat, szükséges és fontos szerepet töltenek be a táplálékláncban, így az élővilág egyensúlyának fenntartásában!

A kampány célja a tizenkét legkarizmatikusabb és a legveszélyeztetettebb európai faj védelme, a velük való együttélésünk javítása. A „Piszkos tizenkettő” a következő fajokat jelenti:

1. Sarki róka
2. Barna medve
3. Eurázsiai vidra
4. Közönséges hiúz
5. Eurázsiai vadmacska
6. Európai nyérc
7. Aranysakál
8. Szürke farkas
9. Ibériai hiúz
10. Tigrisgörény
11. Jegesmedve
12. Rozsomák

Pályázati kategóriák
A pályaműveket gyerek (16 év alatti) és felnőtt (16 év feletti) amatőr, valamint professzionális kategóriában várjuk. (A professzionális kategóriába a hivatásos, vagy valamely hivatalos fotográfus-szervezethez tartozó fotósok nevezhetnek.)

Témakörök:
1. Piszkos 12: A természetvédelmi kampányban szereplő európai ragadozókat, viselkedésüket ábrázoló képek
2. Ember és állat: az állatok és a közönség kapcsolatát megörökítő képek a Fővárosi Állatkertben
3. Kedvenc állatom a Fővárosi Állatkertben – beleértve az Állatkert területén szabadon élő állatokat is

Pályázati feltételek
A pályázaton az első témakör kivételével csak a Fővárosi Állat- és Növénykertben készült képekkel lehet részt venni. A pályaművek lehetnek digitális, vagy analóg technikával készült és utólag digitalizált (beszkennelt) felvételek is. Felhívjuk a jelentkezők figyelmét, hogy a manipulált képek kizárásra kerülnek! (Nem számít manipulálásnak a kép 25%-nál kisebb mértékű megvágása, a teljes képet érintő, kismértékű színkorrekció, a színes felvétel fekete-fehérré alakítása és a szkennelési/digitalizálási hibák retusálása.)
Egy pályázó egy-egy témakörben csak egy felvétellel vagy legfeljebb három tagból álló képsorozattal nevezhet. A fotókat legalább 3 megapixel méretben kell elküldeni a következő email-címre: fotopalyazat@zoobudapest.com. Az elküldött képhez jelentkezési adatlapot kell csatolni (letölthető a www.zoobudapest.com honlapról) amely tartalmazza a pályázó nevét, címét, telefonszámát valamint megjelöli a kategóriát és a témakört.

Beküldési határidő: 2009. július 10.

A kiíró fenntartja a jogot arra, hogy a pályázatra beküldött felvételeket saját kiadványaiban külön díjazás nélkül felhasználja, és a fotókból rendezett kiállításon bemutassa.

Zsűrizés: 2009. július.
Eredményértesítés: 2009. augusztus.
Kiállítás: 2009. szeptember.

A pályaművek elbírálását neves fotóművészekből és állatkerti/természetvédelmi szakemberekből álló zsűri végzi.
A győztesek kategóriánként értékes nyereményekben részesülnek. A fotópályázatról és a természetvédelmi kampányról bővebb információ a www.zoobudapest.com honlapon olvasható.

refugeThe National Wildlife Refuge Association
announces the 2009 Refuge Photo Contest – a digital photo contest to showcase
America’s national wildlife refuges.

The National Wildlife Refuge System has no equal when it comes to conserving our nation’s rich wildlife heritage. The over 550 refuges are home to more than 700 bird species, 220 mammal species, 250 reptile and amphibian species, and over 200 species of fish. Such a diverse array of wildlife means that the Refuge System contains both rare and common types of habitat — everything from southwest desert to arctic tundra. For 40 million visitors each year, refuges provide a welcome retreat to natural surroundings. That’s why we are pleased to conduct this exciting national wildlife refuge digital photo contest.

You can submit your National Wildlife Refuge System images on this site beginning May 1, 2009. There is a $10 entry fee per entrant.

Images can be of birds, mammals, insects, fish, other animals, plants, people, or refuge scenery, in short, almost any sight at a national wildlife refuge can be submitted for this contest.

Entries for the 2009 Contest must be submitted by July 15, 2009. Results will be announced in October 2009 in connection with Refuge Week.

Results of the contest will be prominently featured on our website. Selected photos will be added to NWRA’s digital Refuge Image Library, an online searchable gallery of images taken at national wildlife refuges. Click here to see a collection of all the winning images from the 2008 Contest.

Prizes will include the great products shown on the right. In addition, all photographers submitting an entry to the General Category will receive a complimentary one year membership in the National Wildlife Refuge Association (NWRA), the only organization working exclusively to protect, enhance and expand the National Wildlife Refuge System. See the Contest Prize Page for more information on these and the additional prizes offered by our contest partners.

Winning entries will be selected by two rounds of judging. The first round will select at least 200 images to be included in the NWRA Refuge Image Library. The second round will result in the selection of the top prize winners.

See the Contest Rules and Procedures for more information.

WHAT PHOTOS TO ENTER: We are looking for striking images of nature — on land, in the air and beneath the water’s surface—from anywhere in the world. These images may show animal behavior, portraits of wildlife in natural habitat, plant life, natural landscapes, or people interacting with nature. Do not include photographs of pets or domestic animals. Images of captive animals photographed in game farms or roadside zoos will be disqualified. Captive animals photographed in major zoos, wildlife research facilities or rehabilitation centers are acceptable. Clearly label animals as wild or captive in the caption information. Previously published photos may be entered; however, please include information on when and where the photos appeared. Winning photos from other competitions may also be entered, but include the name of the contests and the years they won.

Entrants must not infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person or submit images that involve the willful harassment of wildlife or damage to the environment by the photographer.

If you wish to donate any of your images to the National Wildlife Federation for its continuing educational and conservation efforts, please click the appropriate button during uploading. Donors retain ownership of their photos and grant NWF only permission to use the images for its educational and conservation work. NWF greatly appreciates all image donations.

Digital Alterations: All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization will be disqualified. Acceptable are adjustments to color, contrast, brightness and sharpness; removal of dust and scratches; cropping; black and white conversions; and use of HDMI (high dynamic range imaging), where multiple exposures of the same scene are combined for a greater tonal range. Not acceptable are photo composites (combination of two or more photos, not of the same scene); the addition, duplication, deletion or moving of objects in the photos; or the use of artistic digital filters and effects. Examples of artistic filters and effects are watercolor, neon glow, posterizing, stained glass, and others which do not show the scene in its natural way.

DEADLINE: The final date for submitting photos is at July 20, 2009, 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. To avoid uploading delays, please do not wait until the final days of the contest to enter. In past years, the large number of entrants trying to upload their photos just prior to deadline caused technical problems which left them unable to enter. NWF anticipates notifying winners in early October 2009.

JUDGING: Photographs will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit. All decisions by the judges will be final and binding.

Judges: From the staff of National Wildlife:
