Your Space. Your Stories
Since 2014, Nature inFocus has been Asia’s premier nature and wildlife photography festival and a platform for passionate nature and wildlife photographers to showcase their work, learn from their peers, and highlight nature conservation. At Nature inFocus, we know that a photograph has the power to transport you to the moment in which it was taken and with each year we've attempted to bring relevant and inspiring work to you.
Over the years, we saw a need for a similar online platform where inspiring photographs and stories from the festival can be archived. How to best take the spirit and content online, without compromising the aesthetics of the stories?
CUE NIF: THE PORTAL
Nature inFocus is a photo-led exploration into India’s wilderness. A democratic and definitive platform for sharing stories and photography that enables relevant knowledge-sharing and curation for everything nature.
WHAT SORT OF WORK WILL YOU SEE HERE?
The stories on NiF aim at bringing different threads together: Wildlife, news, trends, travel, conservation, people using photography and art as the format. You will find photographs that invite explorations and facilitate travel, but also meet the people behind these powerful images, and discover untold stories about conservation. We're looking to do work that is incisive, insightful and beautiful, not just about national parks and protected areas, but flowers, gardens, valleys, mountains, lakes, rivers, your own backyard, even.
Very simply, NiF aims to do what its name suggests: Put nature in focus.
