Experience Forests, Experience PEFC
How do forests make a difference to your life? How do you experience the many benefits that forests provide? Whatever forests mean to you, we want to know. Express yourself through your photos and compete for the 2017 PEFC Photographer of the Year Award!
For the first time ever, our members have come together to run a photo contest that spans the world. Taking place in 24 countries, these national contests all run at the same time: from Earth Day (22 April) to World Environment Day (5 June).
Forests offer endless opportunities for amateur and professional photographers alike – from nature photography of breath-taking landscapes and beautiful trees and wildlife; to sports and action shots of mountain bikers and hikers, to documentary pictures showing the work of foresters, the life of rural communities, or local traditions.
You can enter a wide variety of photographs: from forest landscapes to close ups within the forest. We also want to see people in the forest – living, working or playing. Let your imagination run free!
