Enjoy Lünen

International Nature Photography Festival 2023

For the 29th time the GDT (German Society for Nature Photography) will open the doors to the International Nature Photography Festival in Lünen again.

An exquisite program invites photographers and visitors from all over the world to this most renowned festival of its kind in Europe: in addition to live presentations by national and international wildlife photographers, workshops, seminars and exhibitions, a small stage at the photo market with a series of product presentations and short talks on all things nature photography will provide ample opportunity to talk shop.

An extensive photo market will offer information on the latest in camera technology as well as on tried and tested equipment.

To meet our ambition of international exchange, there will be simultaneous interpreting of all the lectures during the festival and the possibility to listen to them in either German or English via headphones.
