The art of photography is an area where Mensans from over 50 countries with different languages, customs and traditions can converge with a single, visual language! Use your creativity, skills, and technical expertise to produce your entry in the Mensa PhotoCup!


Each year, Mensa holds a National PhotoCup competition in each country first. The top three winners then participate in the International PhotoCup. The final selection is made by an external board of judges comprised of experts in the field.

Unique Structures at the Zoo Zürich

26.05.2012 - 09:30

Ob Streifen auf Chapman-Steppenzebra, Amurtiger und Sinaloe-Königsnatter, Flecken bei Schneeleopard und Blauer Pfeilgiftfrosch oder Farbenmuster von Pantherchamäleon, im Zoo Zürich wimmelt es nur so von Tieren, die durch ihre «Unique Structures» ideale Motive für den Photocup 2012 abgeben. Aber auch ohne Fotokamera lohnt sich der Besuch im Zoo. Wir treffen uns am Samstag, 26. Mai, um 9.30 Uhr beim Haupteingang und begeben uns anschliessend zur Fütterung der Seehunde um 10 Uhr.
