As part of the activities planned for the Tenth WIOMSA Symposium to be held at the Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre, Dar es Salaam from the 30th October – 4th November 2017, WIOMSA in collaboration of the Institute of Marine Science (IMS) and the Department of Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries (DASF) both of the University of Dar es Salaam, the Tanzania Fisheries Research Institute (TAFIRI) and the Nairobi Convention are delighted to launch the Symposium Photo Contest.
The contest will harness photo talent to demonstrate what role marine and coastal systems have to play in attaining the 17 SDG goals, particularly SDG 14: Life below water. Photo contest entries should illustrate images linking science, research and capacity development to attainment of the SDG goals, and how management and sustainable use of ocean and coastal resources will lead to the attainment of the SDG goals. The photos can depict any kind of scene from marine and coastal environment in the region, both above and under the ocean surface.
