About AFPAN “l’Or Vert” (Association for the International Wildlife and Nature Photo Festival):

The Montier Photo Festival started over 21 years ago when a group of friends with a passion for photography and wildlife decided to organize a fair showcasing the prestigious « Wildlife Photographer of the Year » competition exhibition – then organized by the BBC Wildlife Magazine and the London Natural History Museum – the world’s most important competition for wildlife photography. This first event welcomed about 4,000 visitors in 2 days. One year later the « fair » turned into a « festival ». The Organization for the Wildlife and Nature Photo Festival (i.e. AFPAN « l’Or Vert ») was thus founded.
