Experience Forests Experience PEFC 2018

As we celebrated World Environment Day last week, our 2018 PEFC Photo Contest came to close – and we cannot believe how many amazing photos you have submitted!

More than 12,000 photos from around the world, celebrating everything that forests provide and stand for, were entered into the 16 national contests run by our members.

Now comes the tricky task as the national juries start to make their decisions and choose their winners. Make sure you sign up to our newsletter so you can see what photos they pick!

The best photographs from these national contests will then enter the international contest and compete for the 2018 PEFC Photographer of the Year Award. We will announce the winner of this international prize during PEFC Forest Certification Week in November 2018.

Want to see some of the photos that have been entered… then just head to Instagram and search for the following hashtags:
