Every year, the EEA organises a photo competition to raise awareness about an environmental issue and allow Europeans to share their takes on that issue. This year’s competition Sustainably Yours focuses on the importance of living sustainably.
Sustainably Yours aims to highlight challenges and opportunities linked to three of the main key systems: food, energy and mobility.
The competition is open to citizens of the EEA member countries and West Balkan cooperating countries. All participants must be 18 or older. The photos must be taken in the countries mentioned above.
- Sustainable food
Is eating organic food or less meat the key to sustainable food? Can you capture how the food system impacts the environment? Can you share inspiring initiatives or solutions to reduce its impacts?
- Sustainable energy
In fact, from solar to wind, renewable clean energies have increasingly been put to use in everyday activities. New homes and appliances come with energy saving features. What are the ‘road blocks’ ahead? Can you capture the clean energy sources around you?
- Sustainable mobility
Can you capture the challenges and opportunities towards sustainable mobility? Can you walk or cycle instead of driving? Is electric-car sharing or using public transport a better alternative to owning a car?
The winners in each category (Sustainable food, Sustainable energy and Sustainable mobility) will be awarded a cash prize of EUR 1000, while EUR 500 is on offer for both the Public Choice Award and the Youth Prize.
All 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.
