SEAMEO BIOTROP Launches Annual Biodiversity Conservation Photo Contest

The deadline for entry submission is extended to:  16 November 2012

SEAMEO BIOTROP invites photography enthusiasts to join its first annual biodiversity conservation photo competition with this year’s theme “The Beauty and Uniqueness of My Country’s Tropical Biodversity.”

In general, the competition aims to usher greater public awareness and support to biodiversity conservation efforts in Southeast Asia.  SEAMEO BIOTROP believes that the conservation of the region’s biodiversity is everyone’s responsibility.  Photo competition is one practical way for anyone to recognize the region’s unique and rich biological resources and understand their real values toward having more meaningful conservation efforts.

The competition is among the special initiatives of SEAMEO BIOTROP under its 9th Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP 2012-2017).  Other than generating a database of quality photographs of the region’s biodiversity, the competition is also expected to surface biodiversity conservation concerns from the public’s perspectives that need more policy and research interventions and financial support from governments and development organizations.

Contest rules and application forms can be accessed at www.biotrop.org

Deadline for submission of entries is on 16 November 2012.
