The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), with the sponsorship of Canon Inc., is holding its fourth International Photographic Competition on the Environment under the title "Focus on Your World".
"Focus on Your World" will create a visual journal depicting the challenges facing Earth's rich environmental diversity.
The competition, which is the largest of its kind in the world, invites entries from people of all nationalities and ages and is open to both amateur and professional photographers.
The award winning "Focus on Your World" images will be exhibited throughout the 2005 World Exposition (25 March - 25 September), in Aichi, Japan, at the United Nations Pavilion, whose theme is 'Celebrating Diversity'.
The winning photographs will be featured in travelling exhibitions to increase awareness of the environmental issues worldwide. The "Focus on Your World" photo collection is a unique and ongoing visual record of this critical period in the history of our planet.
We know that the extraordinary diversity of life on our planet is endangered. You are invited to enter "Focus on Your World" and photographically express your hope, joy, anger, and concern for all life on Earth.
Send us your photographs. Show us your world.
