OPPORTUNITIES: UN launches photo contest on green issues [GLOBAL]

To celebrate World Environment Day 2011, the UN has launched a photo contest.

Organized by Greening the Blue, the internal organization of the UN dedicated to sustainability issues, the contest is open to photographers worldwide. Entries must be submitted before May 27, 2011.

The competition provides an opportunity to raise the profile of existing green activities taking place within the UN, and will enable everyone to share their ideas of what a greener UN might look like. It provides a space for creativity and imagination, for hopes and dreams.

All photos must reflect the theme Visions of a Sustainable United Nations. Applicants can submit up to five photos each.

The winning entry will be announced on World Environment Day, June 5, 2011.

The winner will receive an award, be profiled on Greening the Blue and their photograph will be framed and presented to the UN Secretary-General.
