We’d love to see photos of your favourite trees! They can be isolated trees in busy cities or quiet parklands, forests or woods. You can send a picture of the tree on it’s own, or with you, friends or family beside it. If you’d like to hold a sign saying ‘Trees Are The Key Awareness Week’ that’s fine too, but it’s not obligatory. All accepted photographs will be displayed on a gallery page on our website.


You can enter a maximum of 5 photographs. If you enter more than 5, anything received beyond that will be disqualified.


The winner will be chosen by our core team from entries submitted by the closing date. The winner will be informed by email on 20th March and their photograph will be displayed on our website and on the page for the awareness week. No other correspondence will be entered into.


There is one prize of ten trees which will be planted in the winner’s name, in rural Kenya. We will publish a photograph of the winner’s trees being planted and a Certificate of Planting which will include the GPS coordinates of the them, within three months of the end of the competition. We will also feature their achievement in a post on our news feed and invite the winner to share with our supporters what trees mean to them.

The prize is nontransferable and there is no cash alternative.
