Amazing images from the 2013 Photo Contest!
WWF Madagascar and Western Indian Ocean Program Office held its first ever national photo contest this past November and the response was incredible!
We received over 1,800 photographs from talented Malagasy photographers or photographers living in Madagascar vying to win first place across six categories: Animals, Rural living and communities, Water and ocean, Plants of Madagascar, Impacts of Humans on the environment, and a special category for Children under 15 years old.
The quality of the photos was outstanding. You can see a selection of some of the best photos on the right.
The top 5 photos in each category were displayed at WWF's 50th Anniversary Celebration held on November 16th at the Palais de la Reine. Those photos have now been compiled into a photo exhibition which will soon be on display at various locations across Madagascar.
