Running Wild!

The World’s Biggest Ever Nature Photography Project is now 1 Year of Age!

On May 8, 2008 we dared to present our little baby to the world - a rather skinny little dude with wrinkles all over and a complete lack of hair. Just one year later we are looking at a fully fuelled teenage multimedia spaceship - and into the stressed faces of its 7 parents, trying to stir it through difficult times…

But, there is much good news on the horizon:

  • the first cities are signing up for the splendid outdoor exhibitions
  • contracts for the multiple languages flagship book are about to be signed
  • and new partners are coming on board.

Please, stay with us and keep telling your friends about Wild Wonders of Europe. And allow us to thank you all for your wonderful support.

There would be no project without you.
And many of the Wild Wonders of Europe would still be a secret to the World.

8 Cities Signed Up for the Great Outdoor Exhibition!

Partners of Wild Wonders of Europe in 8 major cities of the continent signed a letter of intent saying they will host the Great Outdoor Exhibition in their city.

First in the line are: London, Paris, Istanbul, Brussels, The Hague, Stockholm, Prague and Copenhagen.

Exhibitions will start touring from spring 2010. With around 1m. visitors during three months this is an event, your city shouldn’t miss.
