Each submission must include one photographic portrait and an accompanying story of max 250 words focused on one of the following core themes:Faces of the Bold: These photo stories capture those on the frontline of climate change, working hard to make a difference – whether it is a scientist pushing the realms of technology to find a climate solution, a politician braving the tide of climate sceptics or an activist making their voices heard.
Faces of the Brave: These photo stories capture those in the eye of the storm, directly or indirectly affected by climate change – whether it is a victim of a forest fire, a shopkeeper affected by floods or a school child battling increasing pollution.Faces of the Past, Present and Future: These photo stories capture the voices of the young, who are often not heard in the mainstream but will have to face the greatest impacts of climate change, and the old, whose wisdom and life experience is often overlooked in fighting climate change.Faces of the Unheard: These photo stories center around the experiences of those from marginalised communities, seek to dismantle and remedy environmental discrimination, and build a shared vision for a sustainable, cooperative and equitable future for all.
The program dates: June-August 2023
