Global Landscape Forum Photo Competition 2016

Publish Date: Oct 11, 2016

Deadline: Nov 07, 2016

Think landscapes. Think local. Think solutions.

From climate change and deforestation to pollution and food scarcity, the world is facing many environmental challenges. The degradation of landscapes affects us all – through the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.

The good news is that solutions exist. Now is the time to bring local solutions to a global scale.

Do you have what it takes to convince the world that there are solutions out there? And do you have the skills necessary to reflect it in one image?

If this is you, submit your photo to the Global Landscape Forum photo competition! 


About the competition

The competition will run until the Global Landscapes Forum on 16 November in Marrakesh.

Over 500 participants from all over the world will come together to attend this year’s conference on the sidelines of COP22. With representatives from the private sector, NGOs, leading international organizations, government and an online social media campaign that will reach millions through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and live streaming, this is the ideal opportunity to get your work real publicity.

Show us your own landscape solutions and the people working for a better future.

How to submit photos

To participate, photographers must first upload their photos in the official website (See in the "Further official information" below this article) to be considered for the jury’s choice award. Once your photo has been approved and uploaded to our website, you can then begin promoting your work on social media platforms – making sure to tag the relevant GLF social media page in all posts – to be considered for the audience choice.

Photos should be uploaded with a title, the photographer’s name and a short description explaining the location, subject and a brief background story that explains how it relates to climate change mitigation, sustainable land use or reforestation.

Winners of the audience choice award will be selected after the conference on 17 November, and there is no deadline for submission – however, earlier submissions will have a better chance of gathering social media attention. So send us your photos soon!

The deadline for submissions for the jury’s choice award is 7 November and the winners will be selected by 17 November.

Technical specifications

Photo submissions must be uploaded as uncompressed .jpg or .tiff file between 150-300 dpi, with a minimum of 3,000 pixels in width (8mb max) – 30 centimeters on the longest side of the picture dependent on the physical size of the posters at GLF.
