Eastern Rhodopes in the Exhibition "Capture! Don`t kill!"

Eastern Rhodopes are among the most attractive Bulgarian destinations for photoshooting wild animals.That's why this region is  in the focus of the photo expo  "Capture! Don`t kill!"  Here visitors can see impressive photos of the majestic Griffon and Egyptian vultures, flagships of the Rhodopes sky.

The best photo selection  of the "Capture! Don`t kill!" contest can be seen from 1 to 22 February in Photosynthesis Center in Sofia (57, Vassil Levski Blvrd.).

"Capture! Don`t kill!" contest  was launched in June 2011 and had a special three-level selection procedure. On the website participants and audience could vote. After the public voting a professional jury, consisting of  prominent Bulgarian wildlife photographers, selected the participants for the final exhibition.

The exhibition presents 40 entries  from 23 authors.

The New Thracian Gold  team is convinced that more pictures from the Eastern Rhodopes will participate in future  editions of  "Capture! Don`t kill!" contest.

Those who like the Eastern Rhodopes have the great opportunity to participate in the second edition of the photo and writers contest "Eastern Rhodopes – taste the wild nature"  which NTG organises in 2012 for the second time.

New Thracian Gold project is working on the promotion of the Eastern Rhodopes as an  ecotourist destination. Nature photographers will be pleased to hear that hree new photo hides will be opened in 2012 thanks to the project.
