CoPAN Photo Competition

Theme: the social and emotional orangutan 

Prize: 200 euro

 

For a new non-invasive experiment I am looking for pictures of orangutans from Apenheul (the Netherlands), Ouwehands Dierenpark (the Netherlands), Kölner Zoo (Germany) and Hamburg Zoo (Germany) taken in 2015 or 2016 showing:

  • Stress, display, yawns, sexual intercourse, grooming, play, scratching or emotional expressions
  • Close-ups of the eye-region showing a neutral expression

 

The pictures can show one or more individual and should be in colour. You can send as many pictures as you want (preferably in raw format) before January 15th via www.wetransfer.com (m.e.kret@fsw.leidenuniv.nl) or on a dvd to: MariskaKret, Wassenaarseweg52, 2333 AK Leiden

The pictures will be used for scientific research only, they will not be made public or used for commercial purposes.

Also very welcome are:

  • pictures of other great apes such as bonobos or
  • pictures of apes at other zoos
  • pictures of apes showing a neutral expression
  • older pictures (<2015)
  • interesting video material such as short clips showing social or emotional behavior

This material will not be included in the competition, but is still very useful for us, so please send this too! We have many empty terrabites waiting for your beautiful images! Please share them with us and make a valuable contribution to science!

 

Best wishes,

Mariska Kret and Evy van Berlo
