Ji'an has 21 nature reserves and 17 forest parks that cover an area of 307 hectares. The Jinggang Mountain, Wugong Mountain and Qingyuan Mountain scenic spots are representative of the forest scenery in Ji'an and provide rich resources and inspiration for photographers.
The photography contest will go through three phases: creation, evaluation and photo exhibition. The prizes for the contest consist of the first, the second, the third prize and the excellence award. As a result of the contest, photographs will be showed at an exhibition and collected to be published.
