The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB), with support from the European Union, calls on all photography and nature enthusiasts to join this year’s " Zooming in on Biodiversity", an ASEAN-wide photo competition promoting appreciation for biodiversity richness of the ASEAN region through the art of photography.

Commemorating the 2018 International Day for Biological Diversity with the theme “Celebrating 25 Years of Action for Biodiversity,” ACB is in search for powerful photographs related to the following biodiversity areas: coastal and marine biodiversity; agrobiodiversity; wildlife species; urban biodiversity; and wetlands and peatlands.

The overall theme of the contest is “Capturing the richness of biological resources in the ASEAN region”. The contest is a major initiative under the ACB and European Union (EU) Biodiversity Conservation and Management of Protected Areas in ASEAN (BCAMP) Project.

Cash prizes and opportunities for their photos to get published in major ACB publications and exhibits await the winners. Registration to the contest is free of charge and is open to all citizens of the ASEAN region—Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
