This year’s edition of the photography contest is an initiative by WWF-Malaysia in partnership with Tourism Pahang to celebrate Fraser’s Hill’s centennial anniversary. The ‘Eyes on Fraser’s Hill’ Photography Contest is aimed at raising public awareness and deepening the public’s understanding of the ecosystem services provided by Fraser’s Hill and why it is important to protect the area.
The contest starts at 12:00pm (GMT+8) on Friday 1 March 2019 and ends at 5:00pm (GMT+8) on Wednesday 15 May 2019. All you need to do is take beautiful and creative photos in Fraser’s Hill that fall under the contest’s themes (e.g., water, flora, fauna, landscape and people). It is important that all entries for the contest only feature photos that are taken in Fraser’s Hill within the contest period, without altering the natural state of the environment and its wildlife.
Submit up to five (5) of your best photos in high-res format together with an interesting caption for each photo. The caption must relate the subject of the photo to a relevant ecosystem service and why it is important, within 100 words. All entries must be accompanied with the photographer’s full name, Malaysian identity card number, contact number, email address, date and location (geotag) of the photo taken. Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline.
Aside from that, if you have tons of great shots that didn’t make the cut for the contest, do post them on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #wwfmy, #tourismpahang and #eyesonfrasershill2019. We might just share them!
Winners will be announced via e-mail and through WWF-Malaysia’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in June 2019. Prizes will be given out to the winners during the Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race, which will take place on 22-23 June 2019.
Cash prizes up to RM1,500 are up for grabs, so make your way to Fraser’s Hill and join the ‘Eyes on Fraser’s Hill 2019’ photography contest now! Further details on Ecosystem Services, T&Cs and Image Ownership can be found below.
