Winners of International Day of Forests 2020 photo contest announced
20 March 2020, Rome – Extraordinary images from the Philippines and Madagascar have won the International Day of Forests 2020 photo contest, which celebrated the astonishing biodiversity of the world’s forests.
Over 380 participants from 72 countries submitted photos capturing forest plants and animals that they considered extraordinary and unusual – whether due to their appearance, behaviour, unique benefits or value to forest communities.
Entries were judged in three categories, children aged 6 to 14, youth aged 15 to 24, and adults over the age of 24. The winner of each category will receive an action camera.
Congratulations to all three winners, and thank you to everyone who entered!
