This section of the competition is new for 2019 and is open to anyone who is 17 or under. There are no specific categories – we welcome any aspect of wildlife, landscape or human activity in Galapagos. We just encourage all participants to explore and discover the wonders of the Galapagos Islands.
How to enter:
Please note that the same rules apply as to the adult competition so please read the How to enter section. You will, however, need your parent or legal guardian to read and sign a Consent Form before entering. We will then send them a specific link which will allow you to enter the competition. If we do not get consent and you do not enter via the specific Youth Photographer Competition link, we will not be able to enter your photos into the competition.
Please ensure that your parent or legal guardian reads the Youth Photographer Competition Privacy Notice (see below) and the competition Terms and Conditions before completing the Consent Form.
GCT relies on the generosity of its members and supporters to carry out vital conservation work in Galapagos. We aim to be transparent in why we need to collect your personal data and once we have it how we will use it.
How we use your personal information for the Young Photographer Competition
- We are collecting your personal information, and that of your child, for the organisation and administration of the Young Photographer Competition. It will not be used for any other purpose unless you choose to receive the e-Newsletter from us.
- If your child wins or is a runner up in the competition, we will use their name, age, country and chosen image in communications about our photography competition both online and in print. If you do not consent to this, we will not be able to enter their photo into the competition.
