Are you passionate about nature? Do you worry about how your environment or the places you have visited since childhood are being modified? Do you like photography?

Now you can participate in the Fourth IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Photo Contest: My Place in Nature.

The contest is open to all photographers and aspiring photographers worldwide.

Launched in the framework of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s 70th anniversary, this new edition of the contest seeks to promote knowledge of the different ecosystems of the world, as well as their current status and changes, by inviting photographers to share their stories on ecosystems and show us your very own place in nature. Capture the essence of a place or event in nature that has left you a lasting impression due to its beauty, power or uniqueness and share images of any ecosystem, either free from human intervention or altered by it.

The goal is to make use of the communicative power of photographs to promote the conservation of both ecosystems and the diversity of species that live within them through knowledge, and we can all participate!

Be sure to read the official rules for details.
