The „Není les jako les“ contest is one of the largest Czech environmental photo contests. Its key theme are the forests and our relationship with them. The aim of the contest is to support and promote sustainable and close-to-nature forest management as well as responsible wood product consumerism.

More than 25 thousand photos from over 7 thousand competitors have been submitted to the competition in the course of its seven annual editions. The Ekofilm exposition of the contest features all nine of the award-winning photos from the 2019 edition on large-print panels.

“Není les jako les” is held annually by the FSC Czech Republic organization. The main message the competition conveys is the gravity of the threat posed upon Czech forests by the global climate change. The deterioration of water balance, drought, bark beetle calamities and large-scale degradation of unstable tree monocultures – all these are the direct product of the climate change. One of the most frequently mentioned measures in the context of forest adaptation to climate change is the support for implementation of close-to-nature methods of forest management. The close-to-nature forests are stronger, healthier and more resilient against the negative impacts of global climate change.

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) has been a persistent promoter and supporter of these forest management methods in Czech Republic. This year’s edition of the competition with a new title “Mysli na lesy” is still open for submissions. The winning prices feature professional Canon EOS cameras and other photo equipment.

You can also visit the exhibition outside the festival days, at the Faculty of Social Studies of Masaryk University it is from October 6 to 24.
