OUR FREE PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST RECOMMENDATION OF THE DAY!
As part of the Global Wind Day activities, WindEurope and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have launched a global photo competition: “Wind Vision.”
Wind energy provides jobs and regional regeneration as well as providing global export markets. Wind energy helps us meet our climate change commitments and speed up the move to a low-carbon economy. Wind energy should be the backbone of how the globe generates its power. This is our #WindVision
The photo contest aims to draw the attention of the public and policymakers to wind energy and the power it holds to alleviate many social, economic and environmental challenges.
Creativity, content, composition and technique as well as a compelling story behind your photograph are the key criteria for the judges.
The three categories are:
1. Local Impact Wind energy boosts the local economy and provides jobs, as well as improving infrastructure and supporting the local community. In this category, your photos should show how wind energy has benefitted your community.
2. Boosting Economies The wind energy industry is growing rapidly, employing over a million people across the globe. In this category, your photos should represent people working in the industry, factories or in wind installation.
3. Visionary Wind Windfarms signify real progress towards a sustainable energy system. Not only that, together with the natural environment they can make stunning images. In this category, your photos should show how wind energy is living in harmony with the rural environment.
The first prize winner from each category will receive €1,000. In addition, the winning photographs will be displayed at the WindEurope Summer Reception in Brussels and across both WindEurope and GWEC’s channels.
The deadline for submissions is Sunday 20 May 2018 (23:55 CEST). Please make sure you have read the terms and conditions before submitting any photos.
