The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is hosting the contest "Humans locked down: nature unlocked," a photo competition in support of the restoration of ecosystems.

The contest seeks photos of the fauna and flora during the COVID-19 pandemic to bring awareness to need to take urgent action to protect the environment.

The best 13 photographs will be featured in UNECE's 2021 calendar and displayed in a photography exhibition to celebrate and promote the start of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

The deadline is Sept. 15.
