    World Wetlands day, the winners

    With “Sterna in Pesca” Alberto Cherchi, nature photography enthusiast from Oristano, won the #WWDSardegna photo contest which took place on the occasion of the World Wetlands Day from 2 to 9 February 2021.

    The jury, composed of Susanna Di Stefano, naturalist photographer AFNI Sardegna, Giorgio Massaro collaborator of CNR and MEDSEA, and Francesca Figus, communication and marketing expert for Nieddittas, chose from the 143 photographic contributions posted during the 7 days of the competition:

    1st classified


    Pond of S’Ena Arrubia

    "Tern Fishing"

    The Jury: “The photo of the tern well represents the theme of wetlands. Besides being a good photo from a technical and compositional point of view - the diagonal created between a corner of the frame and the beak of the tern is excellent - it says something about the environment. The background blur is soft enough to be nice, but at the same time, it's not so blurry that it doesn't let you know where we are. In fact, we can guess the presence of a reed bed and water, elements that undoubtedly bring us back to the wetlands”.

    Alberto was also awarded with a Nikon Aculon A211 10 X 50 binocular. Congratulations!

    Nieddittas Award



    Pond of Santa Giusta

    “Upside down”

    The Jury: “The photo expresses beauty and decision. Although the context has been turned upside down and you look at it from two different perspectives, what you see is always the same beautiful image, which does not change. Come to the conclusion that nature is an incredible force, you can look at it however you want but what you see will always be a universe of undeniable beauty."

    Giorgia was awarded with an explorer kit, offered by Nieddittas, and consisting of a hat, backpack, water bottle and a voucher to spend on

    AFNI Sardegna Award

    Pond of Piscina Rei

    “Little steps…young Friar”

    The Jury: “The young friar, which has now become a symbol of wetlands, is portrayed in a simple and essential way. The photo is well composed and the warm light adds atmosphere to the image. The presence of water is a clear reference to the theme."

    Bettina was awared with a free yearly subscription to Asferico magazine, offered by Afni Sardegna
