Are you a young photographer passionate about nature and people?

Enter the Forests and People photo contest to help raise awareness about the importance of forests for people today and for generations to come, and you could win a trip to the XIV World Forestry Congress which will be held in Durban, South Africa, from 7 to 11 September 2015!

Forests and trees are important to the well-being and livelihoods of people everywhere, especially in rural areas. Hundreds of millions of people rely on forests for food, energy and shelter. They have tremendous potential to contribute to sustainable development and to a greener economy.

All photo entries should feature both forests (or forest products) and people.

The prize for the winner will be a trip to the Congress (travel, accommodation and registration fee), as well as a portfolio review by Stuart Franklin. The winning photograph and 15 runners-up will also feature in a XIV World Forestry Congress calendar.

Deadline: 21 June 2015
