National Park Fruska Gora, Serbia is proud to announce that we are, as part of celebration of European Day of Parks on 24/05/2009 in association with Europarc Federation organising photography exhibition on the subject of beetles and weevils of the World.


The exhibition will tour to all major cities in our country and there will be lectures and seminars, all with an ambition to draw attention to various ecological issues and further popularise protection of these species. We strongly believe that this will have more significance and further reaching effects if we take it to the international level.


This is why we would like to invite you to take part in this exhibition and would greatly appreciate you contribution.


This call for entries is open to all amateur and professional photographers and we are welcoming any photographs that feature beetles and weevils from all four corners of the world.

Each applicant should send no more than 10 digital files via email on dragita@gmail.com . Only one of the files should be the print size (300 dpi, max size 30cm x 40cm). This chosen photograph will be printed on paper, exhibited and used in the production of the catalog. The rest of the files should be 650 pixels (longer side) and they will be used for the web presentation and to produce a CD.


Please write clearly your personal details, such as name, address and website address if applicable. We would like to know where the photographs were taken (locality and country) and if it`s possible latin names of the species featured. We also welcome your observations, impressions and anecdotes concerning Beetles and Weevils. This is not obligatory and it will not influence our process of selection.


All selected work will be exhibited and all contributors will be fully credited. Please note that this is not a competition and there will be no winners. Each photographer will receive a catalog and CD with all selected work (in non-printing resolution) and there will be a presentation of it on website (www.naturefg.com)


Five previous exibitions “Wonders of dragonflies world”, “Through the spider’s web”, “Butterflies and Moths” , “Orchid Obsession” and “Amphibians and Reptiles” were very successful. You can view the web presentation of it at http://www.naturefg.com/pages/exhibitions.htm
