OUT OF THE BLUE - THE PRINCE OF WALES'S COMMONWEALTH ENVIRONMENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS
A great opportunity to showcase the value and importance of our blue planet is coming in November 2015. The Heads of Commonwealth Governments will meet together in Malta to discuss issues of critical global importance, such as the future of the planet’s Blue Economy – that is, the economic activity that is dependent on oceans, seas and coasts. A vast area of our global ocean lies within the jurisdiction of Commonwealth countries. More than half of Commonwealth countries are islands, to whom ocean matters are of vital importance. These global leaders therefore have critical decisions to make such as how best to ensure the future health and viability of the ocean.
The competition is open to all Commonwealth citizens (and all photographs must have been taken in a Commonwealth country). The winning photographs will be exhibited in Malta in November 2015 at the event of the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting. The competition runs from 8th June until 6th September.
Please see the Entry page and the Awards page for details of how you can enter and what you might win.
