In celebration of World wildlife day on March 3 this year, Earthplus, a non-profit organization focused on environmental sustainability has launched a photo competition for all ages and nationalities. The competition runs for three days, from March 1st to March 3rd. The finals of the competition will be held on March 3rd. The competition will run on Earthplus Facebook page.
Must be living within Nigeria regardless of nationality
No age restriction
The winner of the competition gets an invitation to attend Earthplus’ Earth Day Summit as a delegate on April 22nd 2016
The winner also gets eco-friendly gift items from Kola Badmus, climate stickers from Care About Climate and 3000 naira worth of recharge card or gift voucher.
The competition is constantly seeking sponsorship so more prizes for the winner may be added before the competition day.
To enter for the competition simply send a photo of a wild animal that is uncommon as an attachment along with its name and natural habitat stated in a word document (also as an attachment) to [email protected].
Please also send the following details: Full name, Address, Age, Phone number and Email Address in the body of the email
The aim of the competition is to realise wildlife that are unpopular and almost extinct. That means that the rarer the wildlife photo sent, the higher chances of qualifying for the competition. Note that competitors do not have to have rights to the pictures as they are merely for identification and not publication.
The competition will hold in three simple stages. The first and second day will only involve competitors identifying wildlife by their names and stating where they can be found, while the final four who proceed to the finals will be allowed to pick an animal of their choice and talk about it, stating why they feel that animal should be preserved in 500 words or less.
The deadline for submitting applications to enter the competition is 25th February 2016. 16 qualifying participants will be informed of their success on 29th February 2016. They will also be mailed the full details of the competition.
