Every year GDT organizes
the big "International Nature Photography Festival" with
slide shows by photographers from all over the world, with photo
exhibitions and seminars on latest subjects of nature photography.
GDT also organizes annually the European Wildlife Photographer of
the Year". as an open contest and exhibition. GDT requests
for appealing, convincing and biological irrefutable nature photos
in several categories under compliance with the prevailing laws.
GDT wants to contribute to a better understanding of nature and
support her protection. For all GDT members respect for nature is
the most important rule at their photographic work.
More than 700 nature
photographers have joined to form the society of German Animal Photographers-Society
(Gesellschaft Deutscher Tierfotografen e.V. / GDT) as a non profit
association. About 50 sponsors of the photographic industry, publishers
and agencies support the goals and the work of GDT by their sponsorship.
Thirteen regional groups of GDT meet several times a year for slide
shows, exchanging experiences and for personal conversations with
their fellow photographers.
