Category Instagram Competition for Children and Youngsters

Any images of nature are eligible in this category, including digitally manipulated images. The number of entries is not limited. The upper age limit is 16 years (everyone born in 2007 may participate). There is no lower age limit. Participating in this category does not prevent you from taking part in other categories of Kuusamo Nature Photo 2023 Competition.

This category is open during 1 May–20 August 2023.

Entries to this category are submitted via the social media service Instagram. The hashtags for competition entries are #kuusamonaturephoto23 #rakkaudestaluontoon, #perheilleparas and @kuusamotalo.

We hope for open-minded nature photos that approach these themes in a creative way. You are free to choose the topic of your image.

In this category, five best images will be awarded. The first prize is 350 euros. In addition, five other images will receive an honourable mention and a book.

The competition in this category is organised by Kuusamo Town Cultural Services.
