PEFC Photo competition
Author: PEFC UK
Calling all forest photographers – amateur or professional. Would you like to showcase your images of the UK’s forests?
Following on from the hugely successful 2017 competition, PEFC UK and PEFC Ireland have launched the 2018 photographic competition with the theme of Forests, our Home, Workplace and Playground. The contest aims to highlight the importance of caring for our forests and why sustainable forest management and certification are such important element of this. We are looking for exciting and imaginative images showing how people use the forests for a range of key reasons – from commercial purposes to relaxation as well as examples of how wildlife including birds, animals and insects rely on them for food and shelter.
The competition will be launched on Earth Day on 22nd April and will close on World Environment Day on 5th June. There are three national cash prizes to be won and the winners will be announced by the end of June. The winning photos will then be entered into an international competition to find a worldwide winner and the chance to win a further special prize.
Entrants are invited to submit their photographs through Instagram using the hashtag #forestplaywork. Further details and terms and conditions can be found at www.pefc.photo
PEFC is the world’s leading forest certification system and has certified more than 300 million hectares of forests to PEFC’s internationally recognised Sustainability Benchmarks, supplying almost 20,000 Chain of Custody certified companies with responsibly sourced timber and wood products.
