Jury duty for WWF Norway

I have been asked by WWF to be on the jury in their summer photo competition themed "ocean" - an honour I did not hesitate to accept. Go ahead and enter your best images and win a fabulous prize!

Posted on Jun 21, 2013

WWF Norway focus a lot of their attention towards life in the ocean, both in terms of conservation and biodiversity.

To celebrate the spectacular coastline of Norway, their summer photo contest aim to select the best summer photo taken on, in, from or near the ocean - and you're invited to join!

Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja is a beautiful area which WWF Norway spends considerable effort to protect.

Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja - worth to protect

It does not matter if you're an amateur, and certainly not what camera you're using: If you're by, on or even under the sea this summer you can enter the competition - WWF wants to se how you're enjoying the sea this summer.

The winner gets a two-day trip to the fantastic Lofoten area, including travel (within Norway), accommodation and last, but not least - a whale-watching safari!

The hashtag #verdtåbevare translates into #worthtoprotect or similar.

Important breeding grounds

The unique area of Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja holds precious treasures like the world's largest cold water coral reef, the biggest seabird colony in mainland Europe and the largest cod population in the world.

The area is also an extremely important breeding ground - 70% of all the fish being caught in the Norwegian and Barents Seas visit this area during their larval stages.

The Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja islands are an extremely important breeding ground for many kinds of fish, which is threatened by the oil industry.

WWF Norway work to keep this area protected from oil and gas exploitation and to preserve the unique natural habitats found here.

So - join the competition!

I have been asked to serve on the jury for this competition, something which I consider a great honour. I'm looking forward to judging hundres, if not thousands of great ocean images together with the other jurors in the end of July.

Help me stay busy - keep those great summer images coming! The competition ends on July 8th, so you still have time to shoot some great pictures.
