Iziko is proud to be a partner in bringing the acclaimed Nature’s Best Photography Awards and Exhibition to Africa. In the Iziko South African Museum we place a major focus on featuring Africa’s spectacular biodiversity and, increasingly, the medium of photography has become one of the most effective ways of doing this.
Every minute, thousands of amateur and professional photographers in Africa are taking thousands of images of wildlife and environments – the Nature’s Best Photography Africa competition enables us to distill this vivid collection of images to identify and display the very best at the Iziko South African Museum – we want to show those that evoke an emotional reaction when viewed because of their beauty and the stories they tell.
Nature’s Best Photography originated in the United States with ambitious goals to celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature through the art of photography and to use this vivid medium as a creative tool for encouraging greater public interest and involvement in outdoor enjoyment and conservation. An robust Awards program evolved from this mission to become one of the most highly-respected nature photography competitions in the world and now run in exhibition partnership with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC.
Nature’s Best Photography Africa is a new extension of this globally recognised program, bringing special attention to the spectacular diversity of Africa’s flora and fauna. Join us on this photographic journey into wild Africa. Selected images will be featured in publications, museum exhibitions, and online presentations.
Since its inception CNP Safaris was visualized and built on innovation. The world’s first 360-degree revolving photographic chairs first seen in our photographic boats on the Chobe River forever revolutionized the way wildlife photographers bagged those once in a lifetime moments.
This unique innovation allowed us and other photographers operating from the CNP boats and later the CNP vehicles to capture wildlife behavior, action and inter-action images way beyond comprehension.
As pioneers in African nature photography, it was only natural that we would get involved in setting up the most comprehensive, internationally recognized photographic competition focused on the African continent. We are immensely proud of our association with Natures Best Photography and all our other partners and we are looking forward to contribute in building Natures Best Photography Africa into the premier photographic competition recognized globally as the home of nature photography excellence.
