Photocontest 'lets-plant'

Michael Bruentrup (c) The non-profit organisation 'Let's plant e.V.' (, which has been accredited in Meckenheim / Bonn since 2018, organises an international photo competition on its core concern: to upgrade / improve degraded land in the sense of holistic landscape management. The call for proposals takes place in cooperation with the `Tropentag 2022' conference.
The idea of the photo competition is to find pictures and photo reports on the topic that are as expressive as possible. In this way, interesting, promising and emotionally appealing approaches should be collected and made known.
The two categories of the competition are:
  1. Best single picture
  2. Best photo story (max 10 photos)
An informative title and, if possible, a small history and (scientific) background information should be provided for each submission. Submissions should be sent to A jury made up of members of Let’s Plant, the organisers of Tropentag 2022 and, if applicable, expert sponsors, will review the entries and prepare a ranking list. Depending on the number of entries, one, two or three winners will be selected and exhibited on the homepages of the Tropentag 2022 and of the NGO.

By submitting, the sender agrees to provide a non-exclusive right to the NGO Let's Plant e.V. to use the pictures and the accompanying texts for non-commercial purposes, in particular for exhibitions in print and online, always acknowledging and mentioning the sender/copyright holder. In cooperation with appropriate sponsors, Let's Plant offers to organise publically accessible exhibitions of the best placed photos.

Deadline for the submission of your photos is August 31, 2022.
