Do you take good photos? Do you enjoy spending time in nature? If your answer is ‘yes’ to both, you might have what it takes to win one of the cash prizes in the European Environment Agency’s (EEA) new ‘Well with Nature’ photo competition. Send us your best shots by 1 October 2022.
The European Green Deal and the EU Zero pollution action plan put special focus on improving the state of Europe’s nature and creating a toxic-free environment that is not harmful to people's health and ecosystems. Our health, quality of life and wellbeing are inextricably linked to a clean environment.
The EEA’s ‘Well with Nature’ photo competition highlights our connection to nature, how much we care for it, and how it can keep us emotionally and physically healthy. It aims to raise awareness about the benefits we can all receive by taking action towards zero pollution.
The rules are simple: Send us up to five of your best nature photos in any of the four competition categories — air, water, land, sound — by 1 October 2022.
The winner of each category will receive a cash prize of €1,000. Additional prizes are awarded to the best youth entry as well as the public’s favourite photo.
All participants have to be at least 18 years old and citizens of one of the 32 EEA member countries or six cooperating countries, including the 27 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
