The French Institute of Pondicherry is launching the 5th Wetland Photo Contest. The theme of this year is "Revive and restore degraded wetlands".
If you wish to apply for this year's competition, you must use this form to submit your photos. Each candidate can only submit 2 photos in two different categories. Only colour photos are accepted. Image definition should be at least 3000 pixels in long edge, 300 dpi minimum. Files should not be retouched, or include any editing or overprinting, apart from the conventional optimisation of light, contrast, and colour.
The contest includes four categories :

  1. Wetland pollution: Included in this category are photos showing wetlands in Tamil Nadu or the Puducherry region that are damaged, polluted or contaminated by human activities.
  2. Natural wetlands: Included in this category are photos showing coastal wetlands (salt marshes, estuaries, mangroves, lagoons and coral reefs) or inland wetlands (marshes, lakes, rivers, floodplains and swamps) in Tamil Nadu or the Puducherry region, which appear to be unspoilt, unaltered by human activity.
  3. Human-made wetlands: Included in this category are photos showing fish ponds, rice paddies and salt pans with or without their inhabitants and users, including farmlands and irrigation infrastructures in rural or urban areas in Tamil Nadu or the Puducherry region.
  4. Fauna and Flora of the wetlands: Included in this category are photos showing any plant or animal from the wetlands of Tamil Nadu or the Puducherry region.

Submit your photo before JANUARY 25, 2023
