Mangrove Action Project launch sixth World Mangrove Day Photography Awards.

Once again, as a celebration of International Mangrove Day on July 26, they are raising awareness of the importance of mangrove forests with a global photography contest.

Following on from World Environment Day on June 5, and to celebrate the bold commitments being made across the world for a sustainable future, the theme for this year’s contest is #ForNature.

We invite you to send us your best photos for a chance to be part of a special exhibition that will help highlight the beauty and importance of these undervalued coastal ecosystems.

Photos will be viewed and judged by an expert panel, including photographer Cristina Mittermeier, and there will be special prizes this year for our three chosen winners.

Wherever you live in the world and whether you are an amateur or professional, beginner or expert, young or old, this contest is for you.

Your images have the power to inspire people and to help raise the profile of mangroves.

Deadline for entries for the World Mangrove Day Photography Awards is Friday, July 24, 2020.
