Get your cameras ready – the PEFC Photo Contest starts today!

22 April 2021 Forests in photos

As we celebrate Earth Day, our ‘Experience Forests, Experience PEFC’ Photo Contest is back!

For the fifth time, we are inviting professional and amateur photographers to submit their best forest photos, for the chance to become the 2021 PEFC Photographer of the Year.

Colourful trees, forest landscapes, children playing, people working or animals living in the forest – share your photo and help us to escape to the wonderful world of forests in our imaginations!

How to take part?

To enter your photo is simple, check out www.pefc.photo to see if there is a national contest in your country. Then head to Instagram and post your forest photo using the contest hashtag of your country – and that’s it, you’re done!

The deadline for entries is 5 June – World Environment Day.

We can't wait to see your amazing forest photos! Last year, we received almost 8000 photos – let's see if we can get even more this year!

And even if there isn't a photo contest running in your country, you can follow the contest hashtags to see some great forest images.
