The Wild Chhattisgarh Photography Contest 2016
Chhattisgarh is home to some of India’s least-known, but biodiverse Protected Areas. The Wild Chhattisgarh Photography Contest aims to draw out the finest images, old and new, black and white or colour that have been shot in this beautiful Central Indian landscape. The contest is being organised by Sanctuary Asia in association with Chhattisgarh Tourism Board. Selected images, whether they win a prize or not, could be used in Sanctuary’s forthcoming coffee-table book Wild Chhattisgarh, expected to be released in early 2017.

About the event:
Only images shot in Chhattisgarh and abutting landscapes are eligible. This includes the buffer areas and Protected Areas of Sitanadi, Udanti, Bhoramdeo, Barnawapara, Sanjay, Indravati and Kanger Valley plus their connecting corridors. Camera trap and remote control images are also eligible (however no bird nesting, zoo or artificially restrained images will be accepted). We are in search of images of plants, animals, landscapes and creatures great and small, avian, terrestrial and aquatic. Images will be chosen by a jury comprising the Sanctuary Asia team and may be used specifically for conservation campaigns to promote or defend the habitats and species photographed. As always, copyright will remain that of the photographers. Click here to download the entry form and read the terms and conditions for the contest. For specific clarifications, write to
