Inspired by International Day of Forests on March 21, OneFortyOne has launched its annual photo competition, asking local students to share what they love about the forest.
OneFortyOne External Affairs Manager Charlene Riley said the competition aims to encourage students to get out and connect to our unique and ever-changing landscape.
“We were thrilled with the entries in last year’s competition, especially with the short stories accompanying the photos,” Charlene said.
Along with entering photos, students will again be asked to submit 50 or so words to share what connects them to the forest.
“From riding horses through the pines with their siblings, to dreaming of operating a harvester like their dad, to just wanting to one day see a monkey, it was inspiring finding out how students connected to the forest in different ways,” Charlene said.
“Forestry is our day to day, and it was refreshing to discover this range of perspectives.”
“We’re really looking forward to seeing the new entries this year.”
Winners will be selected in primary school, and secondary school categories, and awarded with their choice of a new MacBook Air, iPad Air, or DJI drone.
To enter, send your photos, together with a completed entry form to email@example.com.
