Climate: State of Emergency
October 30, 2014 – April 4, 2015
“Climate : state of emergency” is an international contest inviting photo-enthusiasts to submit two works that illustrate the issues raised in their home country in relation to climate change, both real and perceived, as well as its consequences on people’s lives, and the individual and collective initiatives that are taken or imagined to fight against its negative impact.
A jury made up of professionals will select the 40 best photographs that will form an exhibition that will be displayed in several spaces around the city. The two winning photographs will represent our city at the world final in Paris, under the high patronage of Yann Arthus-Bertand.
