The Mangrove Photography Awards gives us a fascinating insight into the world of mangroves from all corners of the earth.

All submissions will be part of a global online exhibition on July 26th 2022, to celebrate World Mangrove Day. We aim to offer a platform to help shine a light on moments and stories from the mangroves, while showcasing some of the extraordinary wildlife, highlighting intimate human relationships, exposing threats that endanger our forests, and revealing conservation successes that give us clues into protecting and repairing them.

Did you know that mangroves are one of the world’s biggest allies against climate change? Found in 118 countries around the tropics, mangroves are some of the most carbon rich ecosystems, helping to reduce global rising temperatures, prevent food shortages for millions across the world and protect the planet’s biodiversity. Although still considered by many as undervalued wastelands, your impactful images have the power to tell a very different story!  

Chaired by founder and mangrove filmmaker, Leo Thom, a total of six categories will be judged, with the overall winner crowned the Mangrove Photographer of the Year, in September 2022. Young photographers under the age of 21 can enter images across the categories for the chance to become the Young Mangrove Photographer of the Year. Enter your work for a chance to win the $500 grand prize as well as other great prizes.
