#FacesOfTheForest Photo Contest

#FacesOfTheForest Photo Contest – Winning photos to be part of an exhibition at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site during IV Mediterranean Forest Week in Barcelona.

The first edition of the #FacesOfTheForest Photo Contest, launched by the Forest Communicators Network in the Mediterranean Region and Near East (FCNMedNE), is organised in the framework of the 2015 International Day of Forests. This year’s theme is “Forests | Climate | Change”, climate change being one of the biggest challenges facing our planet while the role of our forests in mitigation needs to be more clearly understood.

The #FacesOfTheForest Photo Contest aims at highlighting the vital role of the forests in the development of forest communities. Photos should be taken in the forest in Mediterranean and Near Eastern countries and should reflect the role played by forest people and forests in general on the following topic(s): income generation; mitigation of climate change; water conservation; soil conservation; sustainable development; social equity, gender balance; women empowerment; youth development.

A selection of the best photos will be shared on the FAO website of the FCNMedNE, printed and presented in an exhibition during the IV Mediterranean Forest Week in Barcelona (17-20 March 2015).

Instructions must be requested at fcnmedne@gmail.com
Deadline for sending photos: 12th March 2015 at 23:59 UTC
