The Competition is being held in collaboration of the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education with the Cyprus Photographic Society (Limassol Branch)

Regarding the topic:

The fauna and flora of Cyprus compose a beautiful natural mosaic in our country and are a source of inspiration and creation. The term fauna refers to all animal organisms of a particular region including vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) and invertebrate animals (worms, insects, snails etc.) and excludes livestock, domestic animals, pets and foreign Species of fauna. Native flora refers to all plants that grow (on their own) and grow in an area (usually natural) without any human intervention excluding ornamental and cultivated plants of gardens and parks. Invasive flora species (eg acacia) are also excluded. In the framework of this photographic competition, we are seeking for representative photos of the fauna and wild flora of Cyprus.
