The International Chamber of Commerce Photographic Award 2015aims at stimulating a dialog around the global challenge of climate change by celebrating artistic skill and outstanding photography.
The Award invites professional and amateur photographers from all over the world to submit applications reflecting the theme of #OurClimate: from the causes and impacts of climate change, to a possible response (past, present or future) to one of the biggest challenges facing humanity.
Entries will be judged by a distinguished international jury chaired by John Danilovich, Secretary General of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The winning photographs will be exhibited alongside a selection of shortlisted images that most powerfully illustrate the theme of #OurClimate.
The exhibition will be held in December 2015 during the landmark Paris Climate Conference (COP21), at ICC Global Headquarters in Paris. The winners will be announced at ICC’s COP21 gala reception on 8 December.
The Award is open to all photographers – whether amateur, professional or student – who are invited to submit between 1-3 thought-provoking and captivating images exploring the theme of #OurClimate.
THE THEME: #OURCLIMATE
Works must reflect on the theme of #OurClimate: this might range from the causes and impacts of climate change, through to public, political or commercial responses to the single biggest challenge facing humanity. Shortlisted images will be exhibited during the Paris Climate Conference (COP21) which is expected to agree on a new global treaty to reduce carbon emissions and address the impacts of climate change.
Entry is open to anyone over the age of 18.
Note: The contest is not open to employees of the International Chamber of Commerce, including national committees and affiliates – see Terms and Conditions.
