Despite the huge challenges facing the world’s ocean, by working together we can achieve a healthy ocean that provides for the billions of humans, plants and animals which depend on it every day.
This year you can share the beauty and importance of the ocean, through your photographs!
This inaugural World Oceans Day Photo Contest allows people from around the world to contribute their favorite photos under five themes:
- Underwater seascapes
- Underwater life
- Above water seascapes
- Humans’ positive interaction/experience with the ocean
- Youth: any image of the ocean taken by someone under 16 years of age as of 1 April 2014
Winning images will be recognized at the United Nations on Monday, 9 June 2014 during the United Nations event marking World Oceans Day 2014.
