The images that define climate change shape the way it is understood and acted upon. But polar bears, melting ice and arrays of smoke stacks don’t convey the urgent human stories at the heart of the issue. Based on international social research, Climate Visuals provides seven principles for a more diverse, relatable and compelling visual language for climate change.
In this category, we are looking to celebrate the work of a photographer - amateur or professional - who has successfully engaged audiences with climate change and its causes, impacts, and/or solutions.
Photographers will be judged on how well their photography embodies the seven principles of visual climate change communication. The judges will also consider how effectively and widely their images have been published, shared, exhibited or innovatively presented to have impact.
A maximum of 5 photographs can be submitted. However, they will be scored individually. All photographs submitted will be randomised as single images amongst all other entries and entrants before judging.
Who should apply?
Anybody is welcome to apply - professional or amateur photographer. Applicants must be over the age of 18.
