Groningen Biology student wins National Geographic award

22 March 2012

Biology student Joris van Alphen of the University of Groningen has won the Emerging Nature Photographer Award. This prize is awarded by National Geographic as an incentive for prospective nature photographers whose work contributes towards nature conservation and awareness. The award ceremony was held at Burgers' Zoo in Arnhem on 22 March.

Van Alphen's prize includes a photo report in the magazine National Geographic Nederland België. The Emerging Nature Photographer Award photo report is always about the project that has won the Future for Nature Award, an international award that aims to support and stimulate young people in their nature conservation efforts. Last February Joris travelled to Chile to shoot his report on a blue whale protection project - a true dream journey, also because he studies Marine Biology.
