Art of Building Photo Contest


por-el-planetaPor el planeta is not just a photography contest; it’s a movement seeking to transform our relationship with the planet and its wildlife. We believe photography is more than just light, beautiful pictures or perfect proportions – it is also a vehicle for real change.

Por el Planeta was born out of a desire to reaffirm narrative photography as a powerful tool that encourages nature conservation and generates an appreciation for biodiversity. We will:

Use photography to celebrate and promote the preservation of natural diversity.

Use the power of story-telling to show the world the important role that Nature plays in people’s quality of life.

We want to celebrate the natural and cultural treasures of the world along with Mexico’s tradition of photography.

We will reward photographers’ commitment to, and passion for, nature and art; recognizing them as leading figures in the discussion of conservation. Por el Planeta will award more resources than any other photography contest to encourage the development of new photography and conservation projects, to mobilize audiences and raise awareness of the daily threats faced by our biodiversity.
