International Beekeeping Photography Competition 2015
Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association (SBA) launches the 2015 international beekeeping photography competition. The competition is open to individuals from all countries who may participate by submitting their own yet unpublished photographs. The competition is focused on four subject categories: 1. Honey Bee and the World of Plants; 2. The Life of Bees (biology); 3. Beekeeping Tasks and Honey Bee Products; 4. Traditional Bee House / Bee Yard.
The photographs will be assessed by a panel of experts according to predefined criteria including: expressiveness, originality, technical design, aesthetics, and honey bee race. Because Slovenia proposed an initiative to declare the May 20th as World Bee Day at the United Nations the photos with the message of saving the bees will have an advantage to be nominated.
The panel will nominate three authors with the best photograph in each category. Among them, the author of the winning photograph will be awarded the gold certificate and the other two authors will receive the silver and bronze certificate, respectively and all of them also a prize. The closing date for photograph submissions is 10th of January 2016. The award ceremony will be held at the ApiSlovenia 2016 Fair on Sunday, 13 March 2016, in Celje, Slovenia. For detailed information, please contact Mr. Marko Borko per mobile phone: +386 51 63 72 04 or e-mail: marko.borko # czs.si.
