UNECE “Humans Locked Down, Nature Unlocked” Global Photo Contest 2020

The COVID-19 outbreak is a tragic moment in human history. ​The pandemic has claimed many lives and continues to have an extremely negative impact on our economies and societies. It came suddenly and forced many of us into lockdown. This long period of isolation made us reflect on the vulnerability of our society and on the need to #buildbackbetter, including by promoting biodiversity and the restoration of ecosystems.

The sights of nature during lockdown kept us positive, reminding us of nature’s beauty and power. While locked down at home, we have seen some remarkable images of animals walking through deserted cities, ducks and dolphins reappearing in canals and nearing shores, birds settling in gardens, butterflies flying undisturbed, plants growing in the cracks of empty streets. Images like these are unique and historical. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, based in Geneva, is inviting you to share your images.

Please note that:

  • Each individual can submit a maximum of 3 photographs;
  • The entry must be an original photograph taken by the participant (the usual copyright conditions apply*);
  • All photographs submitted must be in JPEG format, other formats will not be accepted;
  • Zip files will not be accepted or opened;
  • You should ensure the photo submitted is in sufficiently high resolution, size should be maximum 20 MB;
  • Only original photos will be considered.

Benefits

  • By taking part in this contest, your photographs will gain a chance to appear in a web-based gallery and will be promoted by the United Nations.
