The UK Government is inviting people to tell their climate change stories through photographs.
DECC has launched a new competition which aims to generate a “powerful collection” of images that show the different ways climate change touch our day-to-day lives.
Participants are encouraged to link the image to one or more of the following questions:
> What do you most want to protect from the impacts of climate change?
> What feeling does climate change provoke?
> What can tackling climate change lead to?
Once the subject is chosen, the photograph must be uploaded to Instagram or Twitter using #BackClimateChange with a short caption that explains how the image links to climate change.
DECC said the winning entry will be the image that “challenges us to re-imagine climate change in the most original and engaging way”.
First prize is a workshop with Getty Images in London and a boat trip to photograph an offshore wind farm.
Five runners-up will win a pair of tickets to the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in London and a Getty ‘Year in Focus’ book.
