Nature photographers have a special sensitivity that allows us to understand all aspects of nature, its flora, fauna and landscapes. By appreciating the natural world around us, we have the opportunity to take care of it and save it for future generations. 

33 countries have participated in this 20th edition of the FIAP Nature Biennial organized by the Union of Eurasian Photographers of Chelyabinsk in the Russian Federation. A special recognition to the organizers because in this special year in which the world is suffering the Covid-19 pandemic they had to adapt to these special circumstances. The judgment could not be held as planned in the city of Chelyabinsk. Instead it has been done online, which made the traditional paper section to be judged with its digital images.  Great work also of the jury that had to decide the allocation of the prizes within such excellent images received.  We congratulate all the participating federations and especially the representatives of Italy, Great Britain, South Africa and the Russian Federation who have achieved the first four places in the two sections. Finally, Italy has won the Grand Prix Trophy "Odette Bretscher" 2020.
