The European Environment Agency (EEA) invites you to share your views and observations of Europe’s environment in a photography competition ‘Picture2050 – Living well, within the limits of our planet’.
To participate in ‘Picture2050 – Living well, within the limits of our planet’, you may choose to depict a personal or a generic story, consisting of three photographs, depicting your vision, interpretation or understanding of ‘living well, within the limits of our planet in 2050’ along the three objectives of the 7th Environment Action Programme:
- Natural capital
- Resource-efficient, low-carbon economy; and
- Human health and well-being.
Please note that your submission must consist of three different photographs – one photograph per objective. More concretely, the first photograph should depict your view of what nature brings to our society (or to you); the second one your view of a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy, and third one your view of the links between the environment and human health and well-being.
The competition is open to citizens of the EEA member countries and West Balkan cooperating countries. All participants must be 18 or older.
You must have full copyrights to the submitted material. By submitting an entry, you will be presumed to have agreed to accept the Competition Rules and the Terms and Conditions. One entrant may submit maximum five entries (an entry consists of a set of three pictures) in total in the competition. As each entry will be handled separately, you need to fill out the online submission form for each entry if you chose to submit more than one entry.
The winners will be awarded cash prizes of EUR 2000 for the 1st prize, EUR 1500 for the 2nd prize, EUR 1000 for the 3rd prize and EUR 500 for the Public Choice award and the Youth Prize.
The Youth Prize will be awarded to the winning entry, selected among those submitted by persons aged between 18 and 24 (born between calendar years 1991-1997).
All the finalists will be put forward for the Public Choice Award and may also feature in future digital and print material from the EEA and its European partners.
Submission deadline: 15 August 2015
