Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification

PEFC is the world's largest forest certification organisation

PEFC UK Certified Forest Photo Contest

Posted on September 7, 2021

Many of us are keen to get out and about in the UK’s wonderful certified forests whenever the opportunity arises.

Did you know that all of the National Trust woodlands,  the Crown Estate and those run by the devolved forestry agencies – Forestry England, Forestry & Land Scotland, Natural Resources Wales and the Forest Service of Northern Ireland are all PEFC certified, along with many privately owned forests.

We are inviting professional and amateur photographers to submit their best PEFC Certified Forest photos. 

Colourful trees, forest landscapes, children playing, people working or animals living in the forest – share your photo and help us to escape to the wonderful world of forests in our imaginations!

So next time you are in the forest – be it for work or leisure – we encourage you to take your camera along.

How to Enter

To enter your photo is simple, check out for Terms and Conditions, then head to Instagram and post your forest photo using the contest hashtag #pefcphotouk – and that’s it, you’re done!

There is still time to enter and there are 3 cash prizes to be won and the winners will be announced in our December newsletter.
