Rewiding Portugal and Comunidade Cultura e Arte officially launched the first edition of the Nature Photography Contest “Rewilding Photo Contest”, taking place already this year. Registration is now open.
The Nature Photography Contest “Rewilding Photo Contest” has as its main objective to promote the Portuguese natural heritage and its respective enhancement and protection, through nature photography as a means of informing the community about the magnificent ecosystems and respective species of fauna and wild flora that we have in our country. The contest is divided into three different categories: Fauna; Flora and Fungi; Landscapes with natural habitats. In all categories, only works dealing with wild fauna and flora will be accepted. Each competitor can compete in more than one category, but with only one photo in each, and can only be awarded in one of the categories in question, and cannot accumulate prizes. If the competitor want to compete in more than one category, must fill in the form again for each category.
