The road to 100m climate soldiers in Africa: New climate photo essay prize launched

African Women on Board (AWB), in association with Africa Soft Power (ASP), has launched a Climate Photo Essay Prize, aimed at young people aged 18-30 based on the continent or from the global diaspora community. Leading figures from the artworld have been appointed to judge the contest, with finalists going on to have their work exhibited at leading galleries across New York, London, and Lagos.

The prize is being supported by, ClimateWorks Foundation and law firm, Templars. It’s free to enter, and participants do not have to be professional photographers or artists at the time of entry. Entrants simply need to submit 3-5 photos from their local area that tell a cohesive story addressing the key theme of environmental change.

The prize is part of a wider ‘Road to 100 Million Climate Soldiers in Africa’ campaign currently being run by African Women on Board, and designed to educate and empower young people living on the frontlines of the fight against climate change. The contest will remain open until Friday 9th June, and those wishing to participate can find further details here.
