APR Scout Photo Contest

Snap Your “Scouts for SDGs” Photo for Your Chance To Win!

Imagine the impact of millions of Scouts working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for our world.  Capturing this in photos will create a lasting record of this for generations to come! Enter the contest now to have your photos shared around the world.


The Asia-Pacific Region of World Scouting have announced that the 17th APR Scout Photo Contest 2019 is now open with “Scouts for SDGs” as the theme. 

Scouts and leaders across the Asia-Pacific Region are invited to enter the contest by sending photos of Scouts in action to raise awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are the Goals set by the United Nations as a roadmap for our future, and incorporate 169 targets for ensuring a better world for all.  The Goals address poverty, hunger, education, health, equality, clean energy, climate action, the environment and more.

Last year, the World Organization of the Scout Movement took our commitment one step further by unveiling the “Scouts for SDGs” – an unprecedented mobilization that aims to engage 50 million Scouts to make the world’s largest coordinated youth contribution to the Goals by 2030.



All entries must be endorsed by Scouts Australia and will be judged by a panel of high profile international photographers.
