Unexpected insights, rare moments and fascinating phenomena - the best photographs of the internationally renowned and largest German nature photography competition "Glanzlichter" can be seen in this special exhibition. Zeitz is thus once again one of only a few cities in Europe to present the coveted travelling exhibition. The award-winning photos of 2020 are on display - with a variety of themes in eleven categories, they inspire not only by their high quality.

The competition
The photo competition has been held since 1999 and since then has celebrated the special beauty of nature, but at the same time wants to draw attention to its fragility and need for protection. Every year, a selected jury chooses the winners in each category as well as an overall winner. In addition, a Junior Award and the Fritz Pölking Special Award, in memory of the important German nature photographer, are presented. In 2020, 919 photographers from 39 countries took part in the competition and submitted a total of 16,937 images.

The patronage
The then Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, Barbara Hendricks, as patron of the competition, pointed out in her greeting that the photos show how wonderful and beautiful nature is:

"They let us experience animals and plants as we have never experienced them ourselves. They bring us closer to wilderness, animals and plants that we cannot observe in our garden or the forest nearby, or that we would never have enough patience to observe. They move us and can also move us to do something."
