Enter the SETAC Global Environmental Photography Contest

Do you enjoy taking and showing off beautiful photographs of different elements of our wonderful environment? Can you see ways to capture SETAC science through the camera lens? Would you like to contribute to the photos for the SETAC Annual Report? The Society is offering you the chance to do just that, with the Global Environmental Photography Contest.

Each accepted submission will be displayed in a gallery online and in print at the SETAC Store during the Basel meeting. (If the volume of submissions necessitates pre-vote judging to reduce the number of accepted entries, a panel of volunteer SETAC members will perform that task.) We will award prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, with prizes to be announced at a later date.

Deadline for submissions is 10 April 2014. Voting will take place online from 24 April–13 May. Winners will be announced during the Basel meeting.

  2. Submit only 1 photo per person. The photo must have been taken by you; you many not submit on behalf of another photographer.
