Photo Contest

World Mangrove Day Photography Awards 2020 Gallery

We’re over the moon to celebrate World Mangrove Day with you and share all your beautiful photos with the world. Our 2020 contest has been our most exciting by far, receiving entries from all corners of the earth, from Antigua & Barbuda to New Zealand. Enjoy with us; the tallest mangroves of Ecuador, the fascinating underwater nurseries, the fly-over aerials, the majestic and endangered wildlife, the unique human-mangrove relationships, and the passion to restore a more balanced world. Your fantastic photos from nearly 70 countries illustrate the true beauty and importance of our mangrove ecosystem.

The judging process has now begun, with our four amazing judges; Cristina Mittermeier, Steve Winter, Octavio Aburto, and Jennifer Hayes looking over many excellent submissions. We will be sharing the winners at the start of September, so watch this space!
World Mangrove Day commemorates Greenpeace activist Hayhow Daniel Nanoto, who died during a massive protest to re-establish the mangrove wetlands in Ecuador, in 1998. For the last 27 years, the Mangrove Action Project has celebrated this day with a commitment to action in defense of the mangroves and the communities that rely on them.

We hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as we enjoyed receiving them. We cannot thank you enough, for an incredible World Mangrove Day!
