Forest plays an important role in the life of everyone. But for some, this role is crucial. Is it you or someone you know?
Villagers collect wood, berries, mushrooms and herbs for their families and for selling. Foresters protect forests. Businesses use forest for multiple purposes from timber production to environmental tourism. Residents of big cities escape to national parks and reserves in search of tranquility.
Are you, your friend, family member or neighbor one of these people?
Then join our campaign: send us a photograph portraying the role of the forest in your life or in the life of someone you know. Don’t forget to add a short description (maximum 1 page long).
The photograph(s) must be taken in one of the FLEG II participating countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
In return, we will send you a cool Tree Identification Postcard. With this postcard, you can identify 16 trees most common in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus by their leaves.
Your Name & Photograph at World Conservation Congress
The best photographs will be printed and exhibited with the author’s copyright at the IUCN World Conservation Congress, held every four years, which will take place in Hawaii (U.S.) in September 2016 (only for photographs submitted before July 30, 2016).
How to take part?
Please send us your photograph(s) to our email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Forest in our Life” as the subject line. Please also add:
We will send postcards to all participants who submitted their photographs before the end of the campaign. The campaign will end on September 10, 2016 OR earlier, if we have 100 eligible submissions to the contest. If you see this announcement, it means that the campaign is active and you can still take part!
We will send the postcards to the participants no later than October 31, 2016.
