Free entry and a £1000 prize for the winner
Deadline is the 4th of October, 2019
The images that define climate change shape the way it is understood and acted upon. However, 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 7 principles for a more diverse, relatable and compelling visual language for climate change.
We want to recognise existing and outstanding imagery with impact at our inaugural Climate Visuals Photography Award. Entry to our competition is free, democratic, has ethical terms and conditions and a healthy £1000 cash prize. We are looking for photographers - amateur or professional - who have successfully engaged audiences with climate change, its causes, impacts, and/or solutions.
Photographers will be judged on how well their photography embodies the 7 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.
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.
