8 Winning Images from the World Palm Portraits Photography Competition

The Palm Portraits photography contest which took place for the third time this year had over 5000 entries from more than 45 countries around the world.

The contest was organized by the Malaysian Palm Oil (MPOC) to increase awareness on the pervasive nature of palm oil through the beauty of imagery. The first competition was held in 2012 with an impressive 600 submissions. That number increased to 1000 in 2014.

The four categories participants could take part in are; Nature and Wildlife; People and Portraits; Black and White; and Fine Art and Photo Manipulation.

The winners were announced at the Palm Oil Industry Leadership Award 2015 dinner on 7 September.
