The Tadoba Inheritance Photography Contest

The Tadoba Inheritance Photography Contest

Tadoba is the oldest national park in Maharashtra and is one of India’s most exciting and best Protected Areas, which was declared a Project Tiger Reserve in 1993.

The Tadoba Inheritance Photography Contest was born out of a desire to draw out the finest images, old and new, black and white or colour, that have ever been shot in the Greater Tadoba landscape. The contest is being organised by Sanctuary Asia in association with the Government of Maharashtra and the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve Conservation Foundation. The best pictures will not only be awarded prizes, but may also be featured in Sanctuary’s forthcoming coffee table book ‘The Tadoba Inheritance’, which will be out early in 2014.

About the event:

For the first time, even camera trap and remote control images are eligible (no bird nesting, zoo or images of animals artificially restrained will be eligible). Only images shot in the Greater Tadoba Landscape geography are eligible. This includes the buffer areas and nearby Protected Areas, such as Umred-Karhandla, plus connecting corridors. Best-known for its tigers, we hope however that photographers will flood us with images of the entire diversity of life in Tadoba, large and small, avian, terrestrial and aquatic.

The images, which will be judged by a jury comprising Sanctuary Asia staff and nominees, will also be used to defend the habitats and species photographed.

Last date of submissions for the contest is Midnight, March 15, 2014 to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 Conservation Photography is at the heart of Sanctuary's purpose. Ethics is the cement that binds both photographers and wildlife people in one strong strand. All of us at Sanctuary hope that this contest will bring out the very best of the ecological values, the aesthetics and the best practices at work in the Tadoba Landscape. For the first time we are opening the competition to camera-trap images and for this purpose officials working in the landscape are welcome to submit images to us too.
