There’s never been a more important time to protect the planet and to tell the stories that underscore this need and urgency. Effective storytelling through images and words has the power to activate audiences and contribute to conservation efforts that protect the environment.

Large Marine Vertebrates Research Institute Philippines (LAMAVE) announces the official opening of the ‘Tommy Schultz Travel and Adventure Photography Contest’ on October 26.

The contest is in memory of wildlife photographer Tommy Schultz and entry donations will directly support the Tommy Schultz Impact Media Fellowship, a program designed to support early-career creatives in the Philippines advocating for environmental conservation through impact media.

This competition is a unique opportunity to celebrate photography talent and the natural world, while simultaneously helping to raise the next generation of advocates for the planet. Photographers from around the world can enter the contest, aligning their photographs with one or more of the following categories: Adventure Travel, Underwater and Animals in Their Environment. One winner from each category will receive a cash prize of Php10,000.

For photographers, this is an opportunity to get their work in front of talented photographers and photo editors from GRID Magazine and Patagonia, as well as photojournalists and National Geographic Explorers.

Submissions to the contest will be accepted up until November 30, 2022, with winners announced in December 2022. To submit, full details on the rules and mechanics of the contest can be found here.
