United Nations World Wildlife Day 2017 photography competition “Through Young Eyes” invites entries. WWD2017 will be a day to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild animals and plants, to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that wildlife provides to people, and raise awareness of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, in particular, the role of the youth in this cause. We would like to see expression of all of these through your eyes!
You can either show us the beautiful features of wildlife using your artistic skill or to depict how the youth is actively engaged in the conservation of these amazing species that people are sharing the ecosystem with.
The following submissions will be considered ineligible:
- Photographs of pets or domestic animals.
- Photos that violate or infringe upon another person’s rights, including but not limited to copyright.
The competition is supported by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
One grand prize winner will be provided free air ticket to travel to New York as well as two-day accommodation in New York to attend a high level event at the United Nations Headquarters on 3 March to celebrate WWD2017.
