The Interdepartmental Council on specially protected natural territories and ecological tourism under Federal Service for Supervision in sphere of natural resources Dept in RB and South-Ural state reserve announced the beginning of the photo-contest “Live nature RB”.

The main goal of the contest is popularization of live nature preservation as the guarantor of ecological stability. Organizers hope the contest will help the photographers-beginners to establish relations with each other and to master the art of photo-shooting. Master-classes of professional photographers will be held within the frames of the contest.

The totals of the contest will be summed up in seven nominations: landscape (wild nature shooting), flora and fauna (photos of plants and animals in their natural environment), people and nature (people in nature, the relations between people and nature), macro-photography, series of photos to one theme and one object, slide-films and computer photography. It is expected the contest will become annual. More detailed information about contest is available on the site http://www.rpnrb.ru.
