Reasons for Hope

Part of PA2F Environmental Photography Award 2021

Open Rating Results

Exploring the solutions humans have found to develop more harmonious relationships with wildlife, through conservation efforts and actions in favour of a more sustainable future.

Efforts are underway across the world to save species, protect habitats, and reverse the damage done to wildlife by mankind. In the ‘Reasons for Hope’ category there is an opportunity to document these efforts, exploring active conservation efforts, and to draw attention to species that for example are recovering, are being successfully protected, or have been reintroduced.

It is important that all images submitted to the Award are accompanied by text explaining what is shown, in as much detail as is available. Edited text will be shown alongside imagery in the Award exhibition and book.

The Award offers a €10,000 prize fund, and exhibition spaces at the the PA2F Environmental Photography Award exhibition in Monaco including a VIP invitation for the overall winner (including travel and accommodation). Shortlisted photographers will be published in the PA2F Environmental Photography Award book.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
