Linz, 10th November 2012

On Saturday, 10th November 2012, the winners of the Naturefriends International Photo Championship “Picturing Fair Travel“ were awarded at the Photo+Adventure fair.

The motto of this year’s Naturefriends International (NFI) Photo Championship was “Picturing Fair Travel“ and the winner photos were taken by photographers from Austria, Madagascar and France. The awards ceremony was held on the 10th of November 2012 at the Photo+Adventure fair in Linz. 

“In order to establish a form of tourism which is socially, culturally, ecologically and economically viable on a long-term basis, it is fundamental to have intact natural spaces and landscapes, to consider local cultures and to connect with other branches of business typical for the region. Besides showing positive examples of sustainable tourism, we need to point out the down sides of conventional mass tourism. All around the world, photographers contribute to display both sides and thus raise the awareness of the public. The winners of this year’s photo championship have also played a major role in doing this,” Anita Pinter of Naturefriends International explained.
