2018 Photo Competition: "Haut-Languedoc forests"

Within the 2018 International Days of Forests framework, FORECCAsT opened a photo competition about "Forests of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park territory". It aimed to gather the perception by locals and visitors of their forest through their favourite shot, accompanied with a few words about the way they perceive their forests. This competition was rather successful, with 164 entries, whose quality was very appreciated by the jury. From these entries, the jury awarded five prizes:

1st prize - Georges STAVRAKAS
