Photo competition winner announced!
Mr. Igor Kolar from the Croatian Forest Research Institute has been chosen as the winner of EFI’s Our Forests photo competition. His winning photo, “Crataegus oxyacantha in embrace of morning dew”, was unveiled at EFI’s Annual Conference in Uppsala, Sweden on 28 September.
Mr Kolar was unable to accept his award in person, as he is currently on educational leave, studying for an Advanced Masters at AgroParisTech. He said: “I am overwhelmed with delight and cannot hide my surprise – it is indeed a great honour to receive such an award!”
Together with 11 other pictures, Mr Kolar’s photo will be used in EFI’s Our Forests 2012 calendar, celebrating the beauty and unique characteristics of forests. A selection of the winning photos will also appear in EFI News.
The contest was open to amateur photographers from all EFI’s Member organisations, and celebrates the International Year of Forests 2011.
