The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) is pleased to inform you of the successful launch of ZOOMING IN ON BIODIVERSITY, the first ASEAN-wide Photo Contest on Biodiversity.
In partnership with the European Commission, ASEAN Member States, and the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication, the contest aims to generate public awareness on the importance of sustaining our biodiversity. Powerful images of biodiversity’s importance to food security, health, livelihood, climate change, and other pressing issues and concerns can translate awareness into public support to reducing biodiversity loss – a silent crisis that could lead to humankind’s extinction.
The contest will run until 30 August 2009 and winners will be awarded during the ACB side event at the ASEAN Conference on Biodiversity in Singapore on 21 – 23 October 2009.
We would appreciate it if you could help ACB promote the photo contest within your network by distributing the attached announcement and poster design and by posting them on your website, with link to the ACB website www.aseanbiodiversity.org, until 30 August 2009.
We thank you in advance for your support.
