Theme C - Water Pollution: Raising awareness about poor practices and pollution in the sea, coastal areas, and inland waters, and the importance of preserving biodiversity.
Theme D - Sustainable Tourism: Depicting tourism in the region that respects the environment, minimizes impact, and promotes local identity and characteristics.
Participation in the contest is free of charge, and each participant can submit up to four photographs for each theme, totalling up to 16 photographs.
