This year the competition was organized collaboratively with “Natura 2000 in Bulgaria – New Horizons” LIFE17 GIE/BG/371 project and “Bright Future for Black Vulture” LIFE14 NAT/BG/649 project. The aim of the competition is to reward journalists who have contributed to the coverage of topics about nature, Natura 2000, protected species and protected areas.
In one of the hottest months we will hold the awarding of journalists with contribution to the coverage of topics about nature, Natura 2000, protected species and protected areas. The ceremony will take place on 08.08.2021 (Sunday) at 11 h. in the National Palace Hotel, Sliven.
