2015 Environmental Photo Contest

Author: Leave A Comment

The Environmental Photo Contest is a way for Lions around the world to share their pictures that capture the awe-inspiring magnificence that is found in nature. These photos can fall under any one of the following five categories:

  • Animal Life
  • Plant Life
  • Urban or Natural Landscapes
  • Weather Phenomenon
  • Special theme –Lions’ Pride in our Environment: Capturing the magnificent beauty and grandeur of our natural environment

Clubs are encouraged to hold their local Environmental Photo Contest and submit the “Best of Show” photo to their district office. Lions Districts need to send their winning photo to their Multiple Districts by January 15, 2015. Multiple Districts will then choose their winning photo, which they must submit to Lions Headquarters in Oakbrook, IL by March 1, 2015 along with a Multiple District Entry Form.

“Will my photo count?” In order for your photo to be eligible for the Environmental Photo Contest, your photo needs to follow these rules:

  • Photo must have been taken by a Lions club member
  • Must be an original, unaltered photo
  • May be submitted in black-and-white or color
  • Photos are depictions of the environment –please, do not include people.

We ask that you only send one photo entry per Multiple District. We will not accept multiple entries.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Author: Leave A Comment

Multi-Generation houses, located in communities around Germany, offer many different activities to bring children, adults and seniors together in support of one another. The Troisdorf Lions Club in Germany got involved with their local Multi-Generation house, which helps support the city’s large immigrant population. Learning a second language can be difficult, but with the help of the Troisdorf Lions, immigrant women are learning how to read and write German –helping them better integrate into the community.

Watch the clip above to see how the Troisdorf Lions Club is helping immigrants and children feel at home in the local culture. You can view the entire July Lions Quarterly on the Lions News Network.
