Just got this via email.

==========================
Canon, together with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), invites all photographers - amateur and professional alike - to take part in the fourth International Photographic Competition on the Environment.

This competition hopes to portray that a harmonious co-existence with nature and the environment is essential for society to achieve sustainable development. Canon would thus like to urge all of you to share your personal view of nature with the rest of the world through the images you capture.

A Gold Prize of US$20,000 will be awarded to the winner of the General category, which is open to applicants aged 25 years and above. The Youth category is open to young people aged 15 to 24 years old while the Children’s category is open to anyone aged 14 or younger. Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes will be awarded in each of the three categories.

Entries can be sent to the following address: UNEP Photographic Competition, TIME Inc., 152 Beach Road, #24—05/08 Gateway East, Singapore 189721. Alternatively, web entries can be made at www.unep-photo.com. I would appreciate if you could spread this message to your members / students.

Go ahead now, submit your entries and make your 'voice' heard.
===================

Who else is taking part here?Let's have a sound out :)

So, do you guys think the interpretation of the theme can be very wide or must it be nature alone?

Hmm... Mankind's co-existence with Nature... A pretty wide theme...

not really, a beautiful nature shot can also win, e.g. two pics from japan of a) heron catching fish and b) rainbow over a field.

This competition was held last year, but I don't recall that there was any particular restriction on camera brand used.

Yea... quite true. I tried this competition b4 and it is very difficult as Singapore is no more than trees, buildings and people. Of course there is no harm trying but i would rather not waste my effort roaming Singapore to find real nature. And of course travelling out of singapore to enter this competition is ridiculous. Because you only have a short period of time.

Hi Guys,
Sorry to pop your bubble on this one but there is no UNEP photography competition this year.
As I could only find the results of last years competition on the web link and nothing about this years competition, I contacted Steve Jackson, the guy in charge of the UNEP photography competition and he advised me that the next competition will be in five years time.
Guess that gives us plenty of time to get the right shot anyway! :)
