Mangrove Action Project – a global charity dedicated to promoting science-based training to conserve and protect mangroves – has launched their 10th Mangrove Photography Awards. The competition invites photographers of all ages and levels to submit images that showcase the beauty, diversity and fragility of mangrove forests worldwide.

There are 5 single image categories that appeal to a range of interests and approaches – Wildlife, People, Landscape, Threats and Underwater – as well as Conservation Stories, a multiple image category allowing photographers to tell powerful narratives related to mangrove habitats.

Photographers of all backgrounds, ages, and levels are invited to submit their images in any of the categories. A winner will be chosen for each category, with an overall winner being crowned Mangrove Photographer of the Year. Meanwhile, photographers under the age of 23 will vie for the Young Mangrove Photographer of the Year prize. All winners will be announced on 26th July to celebrate World Mangrove Day. The competition is free to enter with cash prizes for each category.

This year’s judging panel includes one of India’s most accomplished nature and wildlife photographers, Dhritiman Mukherjee; National Geographic Explorer and International League of Conservation Photographers senior fellow Morgan Heim; and Christian Ziegler, a renowned photojournalist specializing in natural history, conservation and science stories.
