Photo contest: Compete for the 2017 PEFC Photographer of the Year Award!

Forests offer virtually endless opportunities for professional and amateur photographers alike – from nature photography of beautiful trees, breath-taking landscapes and wildlife; to action and sports shots of mountain bikers and hikers, to documentary pictures showing the life of rural communities, the work of foresters and/or local traditions.

Share with us how forests make a difference in your life. What is your experience of the many benefits that forests provide? Express yourself through your images.

Our members are coming together for the first time to run a photo contest that spans the world. Twenty four countries are running national contests at the same time: from Earth Day (22 April) to World Environment Day (5 June).

Enter to win a fantastic national prize (like a weekend for two in a certified forest!). The best photos from each national contest will be entered into the international contest.

The 2017 PEFC Photographer of the Year wins a trip to Helsinki, Finland to attend the 2017 PEFC Forest Certification Week or gets a  cash prize of 3000 CHF. The top 12 photos from the photography contests will also be publicly exhibited during PEFC Week and be featured in the 2018 PEFC ‘Experience Forests, Experience PEFC’ photo calendar.
