The EU launches a photography contest to celebrate biodiversity

THE European Union Delegation in Zimbabwe this week launched a photography competition to celebrate diversity under the theme People and Nature: Living in Harmony to raise awareness of the richness of biodiversity in the country and demonstrate the EU’s commitment to its conservation.

The EU public affairs team said the competition sought to highlight the relationship between nature and people.

“This photo contest seeks to highlight how protecting nature is impossible without supporting people and communities and how there is no sustainable future for people without caring for the biodiversity they live with,” the EU said.

The competition, which is open to residents of the country or Zimbabweans living in the diaspora, offers photography enthusiasts and nature lovers the opportunity to participate and showcase Zimbabwe’s biodiversity.

Participants are encouraged to capture and share beautiful images of the country’s wildlife, ecosystems and landscapes to show how nature and communities can achieve balance and have mutually beneficial coexistence.

“Participants must submit photographs inspired by the theme People and Nature: Living in Harmony that capture images that reflect the richness of Zimbabwe’s biodiversity and the interconnection of its diverse ecosystems, wildlife, plants and landscapes with the lives and communities of its people,” UE indicated.
