Greenstorm Global Photo Festival underway, voting open till December 15

The theme for this year is 'Restore Green Lineage' based on the UNEP theme for 2021 World Environment Day - Ecosystem Restoration

The 13th edition of Greenstorm Global Photo Festival, with a line-up of 3519 photographers from 42 countries, has started on its website. The theme for this year is 'Restore Green Lineage' based on the UNEP theme for 2021 World Environment Day - Ecosystem Restoration.

The photographers vying for the Greenstorm Global Photography Award include those from countries like USA, UK, Russia, Iran, Philippines, Ireland, Morocco, Bangladesh, among others.


The festival, organised in association with UNEP, will feature 25 photographs curated by a jury composed of advertising guru Prathap Suthan in New Delhi (Jury Chair), Mumbai-based wildlife photographer Aishwarya Sridhar and landscape architect Michael Little in Bangalore.

Prathap Suthan said, “The growing number of entries from across the world have been both gratifying and inspiring. I see that as an increasing awareness of our planet’s problems, and an amplified responsibility to strengthen, heal, and help restore the earth. These photographs have been nothing less than a beautiful tribute to the contributions of unknown people from unknown places, all working to make life easier for Nature.”


Of the many entries is an image of a hundred Red Ghost crabs crawling on a Bengal beach, a captivating image of a young woman in ZaKa Inn village in Myanmar walking on a rickety bridge to draw water from a natural well in the middle of a lake, an elderly couple sitting in a moving bus decked up with bundles of flowers during ‘Navruz’, the Iranian New Year day, women workers squatting on a mountain of plastic bottles in a recycling factory in Bangladesh and a rare mangrove sapling growing on a throwaway thermocol container floated from Alappuzha to Nakapuzha in the 2019 floods.

Visitors to the website,, can vote online for their favourite image, and the winners will be chosen based on the number of popular votes garnered and the jury marks.

The festival will be open for public voting till December 15.

"Our primary wish is to spread awareness on environmental conservation around the world," said Dileep Narayanan, Managing Trustee of the Greenstorm Foundation. "We have been supporting and encouraging photographers everywhere to use their creative power to actively help raise a global sensitivity around the need for restoration and preservation," he added.
