Composition of the 2022 jury
French naturalist photographer
Nature journalist on radio and TV
Eco-adviser, Radio/TV columnist, presenter and expert in environmental communication, Virginie Hess shares her passion for nature with generosity and enthusiasm, making it a point of honor to make accessible, attractive and concrete, subjects considered by many as too sharp.
The type of communication she likes the most is storytelling. She likes to tell universal and inspiring stories about the biodiversity that surrounds us. She also moderates many events and debates related to the ecological transition for public authorities, companies and associations.
Belgian forest ranger and naturalist photographer
Biologist / Ornithologist / Belgian Photographer
After extending Biology through research, co-writing a book on good agricultural practices for maintaining biodiversity, co-founding an organic food distribution cooperative, Baptiste is now rediscovering the essence of his vocation: field biology, with his camera as traveling companions! Father of two young boys, he promotes on a daily basis the importance of rethinking the relationship of man to his environment. It is in this sense that he offers observation trips for photographers of all levels. He is also an ambassador for SOny Belgium, Kite Optics, and Tragopan.
