Innovation for Biodiversity Photo Contest

World Environment Day (WED) 2010 is aimed to be the biggest, most widely celebrated, global day for positive, environmental action. As 2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity, an integral theme to this day is Many Species, One Planet, One Future.

To celebrate a future rich in biodiversity, UNEP’s World Environment Day, alongside National Geographic and Adventure Ecology, are inviting everyone to participate in the Innovation for Biodiversity Photo Contest.

The Innovation for Biodiversity Photo Contest seeks photos that highlight innovative solutions for ending the biodiversity crisis and safeguarding our planet's irreplaceable natural wealth. There is a $3000 prize fund available for the winners.

This is an international contest, open to all eligible contestants 13 and over. All it takes to enter is a photograph and 200 words to tell the story, and crowd voting helps determine the winners.

You can find full details about the contest, rules, and entrance requirements at Myoo Create, where the challenge is being hosted.

This contest is designed to raise awareness of projects and actions that help save and restore biodiversity. By collecting photographs that tell the story of efforts to end the biodiversity crisis, we hope to increase the engagement around this striking and complex problem, and usher in a thriving future where many species can coexist on our one planet.
