Earth Day Asia Instagram Photo Contest

April 3, 2013

As we celebrate Earth Day and the environment around us, The Asia Foundation is looking for your compelling photos that exemplify what the environment in Asia means to you. For example: What is your favorite natural environment or resource? What’s at stake or threatened in Asia’s environment? Images will be judged by our in-house photographer and the winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, 2013. The Asia Foundation will prominently feature the winning photographs with credits on Facebook and Instagram.

  1. I love Asia. It feels like a very good environment. I live in Indonesia. Earth Day is a very good day for people who likes nature. I love traveling. Especially to countries in Asia. We should love nature. When i travel to Bali, i feel like i can become one with nature. I think this contest is a really good idea. It really helps people to finally understand how important is the Earth.
