FotoQuest Go is returning from June 8th 2018, with €10,000 available for your contributions.

Why is your contribution important?

Entwaldung

Every day around 2,5 million m² of land in Europe is being turned into roads, businesses, homes and recreational areas, which leads to soil degradation and an increased risk of flooding, water scarcity, unproductive agricultural land and heat waves in cities, contributing to global warming.

Entdecker

With your help, FotoQuest Go can track the effect of these changes in our landscape and help to conserve Europe’s nature for future generations.

Planung

We have placed around 340,000 points at a range of locations across Europe. Using the map, find a point near you and follow the instructions to complete each quest. A quest requires you to take photographs of the landscape and answer a few short questions. If you want to find out how, scroll down.

How It Works

We have placed around 340,000 points at a range of locations across Europe. Using the map, find a point near you and follow the instructions to complete each quest. A quest requires you to take photographs of the landscape and answer a few short questions.

If your contribution passes our quality check, the point you visited will be removed from the map, and you will earn 1, 2 or 3 EUR depending on the distance of the point to the nearest road. Once a week there will be the chance to win 30 EUR at a point that is located far from roads and urban areas. This point could be in any country in Europe. The campaign will run between 8 June and 31 August 2018.

Here are the steps you need to take to make a quest:
