New Photo Mission: Protecting Where We Play

By EyeEm Team - 2 min read

We’ve teamed up with MIZU to find and photograph some of the world’s most beautiful natural shots

There’s not a human being on the planet who isn’t, at some stage, swept away with the breath-taking beauty of nature. As a photographer, it’s even better because we actually have a chance to capture these incredible scenes – there’s no model quite as beautiful as Mother Nature!

Although majestic and awe-inspiring, nature’s beauty is still a fragile one. That’s why we’ve teamed up with MIZU, who create innovative reusable containers that reduce waste created by single-use bottles and cups, for our new photo mission, Protecting Where We Play.

Your Mission: Capture the incredible natural locations we need to protect. From glorious mountain ranges, to golden beaches and dark and mysterious forests. Nature is all around us, and this mission is all about recognising and photographing these environments which need our protection.

Your Reward: The most breath-taking photo of a fragile, yet beautiful natural location will win a selection of MIZU bottles and a Nixon watch. The 9 runners-up will also each win a MIZU bottle, and be featured in an online EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: September 7, 2015
