Awards & prizes

Arne Schmitz’s Nature Conservation Prize 2014
“The award winner is an outstanding multi award-winning photographer with the world’s oceans as his working field. Magnus receives the price because his images and texts create great understanding and interest in the ocean and it’s organisms – small and large – and therefore, in the same spirit as Arne Schmitz, he promotes conservation of marine diversity and sustainable marine environments.”
