Green Photo Contest encourages the public to capture the green building around us. Let us show the delicate connection between humans and green buildings by capturing our moments of work and leisure, and those new design elements of green buildings improving our lives and environment. Let’s show the subtle connection between our affection and green buildings through photos!

In addition to the Open Category, households are invited to join the Family Category. Participating households are encouraged to explore green elements appeared in daily life and share their green living secret with the public. The Family Category will soon open for registration, please stay tuned for the latest updates.
