‘Action for Nature’ Photo Competition

We are back with our THIRD photo competition, all in celebration of World Photography Day. This years theme is ‘Action for Nature’. Read on to learn more!

Action for Nature

Everyday people amaze us with their commitment to preserving nature! Whether this is planting a tree, cleaning their environment, teaching a class about nature or assisting a bee back outside, we want to see. No action is too small, as we believe even the smallest action has a significant impact. So submit your Action for Nature snaps into this year’s competition!

Whatever you capture, please take time to also give it a title and short description, as the message is as just as important as the photo.


We have 3 categories; Adults, Youths, and Juniors. We ask for a small submission fee, which will be donated directly to the Conservation Education Society education programmes and operations, this year we will be using funds towards providing photo workshops and photography opportunities for local students!

Adults- 18 years and overKSH 600/$5
Youth- 13 – 17 years oldKSH 400/$4
