Photo competition “Following the Eagle”

The Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds announces a photo competition entitled “Following the Eagle”.

Find and photograph the eagles around us - an ornament on a building, a drawing, company emblem, statue, or other available fragment of the urban environment. An important condition is not to create the photographed element yourself, but to find and capture a ready-made element in the urban environment. After taking the photo, upload it to Facebook with hashtag #posleditenaorlela and #orlite. Each participant has the right to participate with up to 5 pictures.

 The competition period runs from July 27 to September 30, 2017.

The awards provided by BSPB are:

- Binoculars Opticron Oregon 8x32

- The Definitive Field Guide to Birds “Birds of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East”

- T-shirt

- Bag

- Magnet and poster

The photo competition is part of the campaign “Life for the Eagles in Bulgaria”. The campaign is organized within the projects “The Eagle’s Forests”, “Life for Safe Grid” and “Land for Life”, funded by the EU's LIFE Program and supported by the Executive Forests Agency. The campaign is organized on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the LIFE Program, the Habitats Directive and Natura 2000.
