Until September 4, 2022 inclusive, you can participate in our summer photo contest in collaboration with the Lafuma brand, which specializes in outdoor sports equipment. Passionate photographers, beginners, amateurs, curious or inspired, for your photos! This year there are not one but three categories on offer! So choose the one that inspires you and try to win many gifts.

In 2021, we registered more than 370 entries in our photo competition. This year, ONF invites you to discover our fantastic French forests even more closely. The Saverne forest near Strasbourg, the Suzac forest in Charente-Maritime, or even the Noirmoutier forest in the west… All these natural spaces offer you their unique landscapes and their advantages for living an experience with nature.

Enthusiasts, beginners, curious or inspired, this is an opportunity to express yourself and share your favourites, your favorite corners of the forest or your summer discoveries! Send us your most beautiful forest photos from the summer of 2022: a magnificent forest landscape, a charming path, a wild animal in the middle of nature… Three categories are available to you this year! Then take a picture of what pleases you, what arouses emotion or wonder in you…

What will be the most beautiful pictures of your summer in the forest? Up to you !

1. THE FOREST AND YOU!

Share your summer in the woods, priority to “fun” and people! One condition here: see you in the forest! On a hike with friends, in the middle of a yoga or sylvotherapy session, in a group or in a selfie… We count on your creativity while respecting natural spaces!

2. FOREST FAUNA, WILD ANIMALS IN THE FOREST…

Every year we receive a lot of animal photos in the forest. This category is dedicated to them. Surprise us, surprise us with a wild forest animal in its element. Here, too, respect for good practice in the forest is required.

3. FRENCH FORESTS, A JOURNEY TO THE OTHER END OF THE WORLD

French forests are the most beautiful in the world. Does a forest near you look like Canada? Take us to Colorado, the Amazon or elsewhere without leaving France (metropolitan and overseas).

Aesthetics take precedence here!
