SUGi x NAVA Photography Contest 2024

Rewild our eyes and show us how everyone can reimagine urban life.


The SUGi x NAVA Photography Contest celebrates the ways we bring nature closer and bring the wild back to everyday urban settings.

We want to see greener places through your lens and your creativity. We love the notion of nature rekindling the wild side of human nature too. We welcome all types of photography, whether you are documenting the natural world as it is today or envisioning a future paradise.

The SUGi x NAVA Photography Contest welcomes photographers of all levels from around the world to submit their work for the chance to win cash prizes totaling $10,250 with a grand prize of $4,000.

In our third year of this contest, we are adding categories. Please choose a category (People & Nature, Urban Wildlife, Climate, Conceptual, Natural Diversity, Urban Waterways, Alt Landscape, New Nature) to submit your photograph(s) upon entry.

SUGi empowers people to invest in nature and restore biodiversity by planting SUGi Pocket Forests in cities, schools and waterways around the world.
